They are understaffed and over full half the time.Christies have been nothing short of fantastic with my mother however, the staff there deserve a medal. But I did take my brother into Wigan Infirmary a few months back and was horrified with his treatment.He was left waiting in pain on a bed a long time, when I went in he rolled off and I caught him , the sides hadn;t been put up and he was delirious with pain. But the staff were run off their feet that day.
I work as a carer for the elderly, they are terrified of having a fall and going into hospital, all of them seem to have a bad tale to tell.But then again we do tend to complain about the bad and not give credit when its good.
I think most hospitals are understaffed, and those staff are underpaid.
