6 months ago I passed out at home and was taken to Ipswich Hospital (QLD), I spent 6 days there having test after test. Firstly I’d like to say that the staff I saw were excellent, friendly, and informative and seemed ready to help in any way. I thought the care I received was outstanding.
The food appeared to be carefully thought out, as it seemed to cater across the board for all diets. The only complaint I have is night time -the noise there was awful and I found it was impossible to sleep as there were constant alarms going off, clunking of staff shoes, constant crashing of fire doors, staff changing shifts, and after 4 nights of this I was cranky and didn’t care.
The last time I was in hospital I was 13yrs, I’m now 60yrs,back then a good night’s sleep was looked on as part of the healing process, if I had known this beforehand I could have prepared for the noise and had a much more pleasant stay.
