I have never experienced such apathetic nursing care as I did at my recent stay at St. John's, and I will NEVER go back.
What if a night nurse aide TOLD you, just a few hours post-op in the middle of the night because you'd rung for a nurse when you found your sheets wet and were worried that you were bleeding out, that you had had a BM in the bed? And what if you quickly were able to discern for yourself, in your drugged, stuporous state, that this COULD NOT be the case (and indeed turned out not to be the case)? Would you not be alternately mortified and completely pissed off?
And what if the actual night nurse, with her pissy attitude, told you, the first time you saw her, that she was 'stressed out' because there were six new intakes and only four night nurses? Would that imply that she was willing to provide sympathetic care to you, or would you, more likely, feel like you were imposing whenever you had to ring for anything because she had already let you know how overworked she was?
I could go on, and will, to the management of the hospital. I had a couple of wonderful nurses, too, whose caring demeanors and empathetic dispositions were unfortunately completely eclipsed by the treatment I received by those who came before them.
Avoid this place like the plague.
Pros: Some wonderful nurses
Cons: Experience ruined by inept/apathetic nursing 'care'
