Treatment second to none but compassion is needed
EVERY week there are reports regarding Lincolnshire hospitals, with added shortage of staff as the reason why so many deaths were reported over the past years.
In June 2012 I was admitted to the Pilgrim and spent six days on Ward 5B with no problems, my care was extremely well administered.
On June 8, 2013 I was again admitted to A and E, my treatment of the staff from my admission to my discharge was second to none – the specialist nurse and registrar in attendance in resuscitation.
I could not have had better care had I been in private clinic in Harley Street.

Not only is it a lack of nurses but a great many nursing staff lack the compassion needed to look after the patients. This is something one has naturally and cannot be part of training.
There are other issues that need looking in to, not only on the wards but around the hospital in general.
Concern must also be with the dispensing of drugs to patients with language problems.
Do management ask and listen to patients if they need to complain? Do patients refuse to complain because they are afraid of retribution by the medical staff who class them as that patient trouble maker.
We do not wish to be ill and are there to be cared for in the most professional way possible, this should be one of the main concerns and properly addressed.
Bad management and excessive demand, not only by the natives but also the influx of immigration has put a strain on the NHS causing our country's failure in this matter.
When management and government officials stop wingeing about who is to blame, maybe someone will have the ability to sort out this whole problem.
