I believe Broome Hospital is first class in patient treatment from medical staff. I have been a patient a few times. Just recently I was in isolation room for several days owing to immune system too low after Chemotherapy. To come into my room staff had to be masked and plastic aprons and strict hygiene of course. The first couple of days I was there, one cleaner came in and seemed to swipe at the wash basin and that's all I saw that was done in those days. After I said something to the staff, the cleaners came every day but seemed to have no concept of cleaning in an isolation room and bathroom. Very poor cleaning standard and perhaps the Hospital needs to look into that side of cleaning in an isolation room. Practical demonstration and the importance of cleaning would be my suggestion!
I have never had bad food before at Broome Hospital but I learnt that they had a different cook (the staff actually apologized to me about the quality of the food). It was just mainly slop overcooked and even the dessert, unless you had jelly and fruit and ice cream, was inedible, or sandwiches was an option which I had and friends brought food into me. I would also suggest that the food was surely not a menu from a dietitian.
"Need a review of the cleaning in isolation rooms."
