This is one for the locals who pop in and out of this blog! I read today in the Daily Mail that they had compiled a league table to record the number of complaints against the behaviour and attitude of nursing staff members in NHS hospitals.
Top of the table, way out in front, was LEICESTER ROYAL INFIRMARY who racked up 275 complaints in 2010!! Now why am I not surprised at that? When my wife and I were on a short break my daughter marched in and was so concerned about the condition of my 93 year old mother that she discharged her and took her home! Not one person asked why!? That was after one nurse took her to the toilet (she was recovering from a fractured hip) and left her in there. She was only released after a passing catering lady heard her tapping SOS on the toilet door!! Well done the Royal this was an award richly deserved.
Oh and by the way Leicester General climbed to 8th in the league. Not bad considering the number of NHS hospitals in the country. Perhaps we should be looking at who is training these people.
