It takes only 1 bad apple to spoil the whole barrel.
The nurses in the majority are excellent, but I believe this can't be said about all of them.
Being bedridden, the only way to pass urine was into a bottle. In my case, 3 bottles were full and no other bottles supplied. The nurse took 2 hours to respond to my request for the bottles to be replaced or at least emptied.
This was done immediately by a different nurse when they knew. This was not during the night but mid-morning. The first nurse would come into the room, switch off the call button and mutter that they would be back, not to be seen again until another press of the call button after a 10-minute wait.
Several times the nurse was carrying on, what I believe was, a private conversation on a mobile phone. I feel that this nurse should be fully trained.
