Was given food I was physically unable to eat due to oxygen drying my mouth out, I was starving. Luckily I had put some snacks in my bag. I was physically sick only hours after surgery, I was very unsteady on my feet, sat in the shower and left to sort myself out.
Shift change, then the night nurse told me no extra pillows, I needed one for my knee as waiting for knee replacement. It seemed they were too busy to put pressure stockings on. I buzzed again later, the next nurse told me to wait for the previous nurse. I advised they were too busy. The nurse finally put the stockings on, I believe one incorrectly, which caused pain in my foot.
For a private hospital, in my opinion, I got substandard care. I put in a complaint and was told sorry and I should have complained at the time to the nurse manager.
