My elderly mother was mistreated at this facility. Staff do not treat the patients with respect especially those who have no relatives or visitors to defend them. Many personal items went missing from... more my mother and other patients possession on Rosemary Ward. When this was bought to the attention of staff, it was dismissed. My mother contracted MRSA whilst there and my family were not informed by the hospital. We found out that she was infected whilst visiting and saw a side table next to her bed with antibacterial solution next to her bed and a notice on the wall stating hygiene precaution. Patients who contracted MRSA were kept on open wards putting other parents and their visitors at risk. The side rooms were occupied with those who also had MRSA, however, their visitors were given aprons to wear compared to the open ward. Staff gossip and inform patients about the internal conflicts. Please avoid this facility like the plague!
[Caution : Watch Andrea who works on Rosemary Ward - she'll befriend you to gain your confidence and whilst your in the gym, shower or at lunch will remove your personal items]
This is not a place for young people. Walk in happy, leave with depression. Some staff are lovely but mostly rough and inconsiderate. Also, saving money is priority bomber 1 for this hospital rather than... more patients wellbeing.
