Disgusted at New Wing

When I went to one of the Newcastle Hospitals which is a NEW WING, with Ian the other day for the first time ever may I add, he had to have his bloods done, and when he came out his arm was pouring of blood and with being on Warfrin, we were worried, so he went back in to see the nurse, and she stuck another cotton ball on and said " Oh that will stop soon" Not take a seat and we'll see if it subsides

Not only that i was so disgusted when I went into the ladies toilets, and after washing my hands I found nothing to dry them on there was no hand dryer, no paper towel dispenser and no paper towels, and this is a New Wing.

I also noticed while walking around that there was no Hand Gel Pumps on any of the walls either.....I work for the NHS and our Hospital is always asking the public to use the hand gels, I carry one on my ID Badge when I'm at work, I even use sterile wipes to clean my keyboard before i use it, and even those at the Hospital where Ian normally goes has Hand Gel Pumps on the walls, and the Consultant always uses it before he sees to a patient or shakes any one's hand.

And now with this new Swine Flu going around.....it got me so annoyed to think I'm doing my hardest to keep Ian safe from germs and then when he goes to what we would think is a safe and caring place to see such disgust...and un-hygienic, so I was that livid i emailed the hospital and voiced my concerns about this.

Hope he never has to go back there again.

Now watch this space because I could be sacked with making this public, even without naming them......but i feel as if i have the right to freedom of speech..

Well done Sylvia for voicing your concerns. If you feel so strongly about something.........speak up. I hope someone gets back to you soon.

Love your new blogger background by the way. To get rid of your old centre panel........
You need to change your template to minima to erase your old blogger background.

Here's How:

1. Sign in to your blog

2. Click on Layout

3. Click on ‘pick a new template.

4. You’ll see a template in the upper left hand corner called ‘minima’. Click the box next to that.

5. Then click the orange ‘save template’ button.

6. Then, you’re done!

Your centre panel will then match the outside
