"When my husband died I was left alone at the Calvary Wakefield Hospital."

About: Calvary Wakefield Hospital

(as a relative),

My husband passed away and I was left in the room with my dead husband for over an hour. The nurses on duty in this ward never came to check. When I went to the nurses station to inform them of his passing they were sitting there gossiping and did not seem to made any attempt to check on my husband. An appalling lack of care. When I left they never even asked me who the funeral director was, or while I was there went to check that my husband had indeed passed, nor did they enquire if I was ok. The worst part was that when I got the death certificate it stated my husband died the following day, it seemed to me that they couldn't even get the date he died correct. I would never recommend this hospital to anyone. It seemed to me that the nurses I saw just do not care and seem to be only interested in gossiping at the nurses station.
