My toddler had surgery recently, the ICU nurses and drs were amazing, could not fault them.
But on ward 1b, 2 obs machines had cracked leads which had exposed wires, (the lead that attaches to the foot probe) which they had on my toddler for a few hours before I noticed and requested to change.
One set of blinds don't work, have looked up and noticed other exposed wires hanging out from the top,
In my opinion, the room was clean, not too bad clean, but the bathroom mirror and sink were not clean.
I feel there were very long call wait times with the nurse-to-patient ratio being 1:4 - I don’t think it's too safe.
Last appt with EIP and social worker, the social worker said they would come in and see us to supply us with food vouchers and any support needed. We asked if we could see them again but I believe another social worker then contacted the person we had seen. The new social worker then came back and said we are not under our original social worker now, who didn't even come up themselves or let us know.
Was hoping for a bit of extra support as we did not expect to be here this long.
