the trouble you had is mainly down to that GBH is a small hospital its not possible to have the patient mix on a small ward that happens up here were compromises are not made.
Compromises are one thing, but when you compromise and it results in an inferior level of care and/or conditions that would be considered unacceptable in any other circumstance, its a compromise too far. Are we supposed to just sit back and accept a second rate service because of where we happen to live.
the chap shouting out would at a guess either had dementia or was coming down off something. its not legal to medicate a noisy patient if there condition does not warrant it.
And leaving some guy in such a state of paranoia and delusion that he's so scared that he can neither keep quiet or sleep, isn't condition enough to warrant even a mild sedative? Never mind that his behaviour was creating an impossible situation for anyone else in the room, and the consequences for their health.
i know for a fact that the staff on both wards are dedicated and caring. those that are not do not last long on the wards. SERIOUSLY THE NURSES DO CARE.
I'll run with that, subject to the following amendments.... "SERIOUSLY SOME OF THE NURSES DO CARE".
