I was appalled at how dirty the entrance lobby was yesterday. only 1 dirty looking hand sanitised hidden by the reception desk who were less than amenable when approached for directions. dirty cafe are and no sign if hand washing facilities and only 1 hand sanitiser. men's toilets closed. disabled toilets locked. I was with 2 elderly people who had difficulty walking. no sign of any staff to ask for help with wheelchair assistance. Dirty seating area with torn seats. all in all a hive of filth and mist likely rife with bacteria. No sign of how the risk of coronavirus was being tackled. No sign of bins to put dirty tissues in. compared to hidoitsls in Europe UCL is a very poor exmple of the standards the NHS portends to.
The staff at this hospital are the best NHS staff I have ever been treated by. Not only are they kind and empathetic but they are also incredibly knowledgable and very focused and hard working. I was admitted to the hospital alone and afraid and my illness was taken seriously and the staff on hand were so sweet and kind to me. The Dr's showed a level of genuine concern I have never seen. The hospital ward I was on EGA was immaculate and clean and the staff were very good at following hygiene protocol. Always washing their hands and even hiding needles as they passed from one patient to another presumably to prevent the other patients from being unnerved. They treated me like a family member and I felt I was in the best hands. Fantastic hospital.
Amazing hospital where we have great teamwork.
Hi everyone, I just wanted to share something that has happened to me over the last week. We are all quick to moan about the NHS but I have had an experience that has blown me away. Last week I had a referral appointment with Prof Mundy who is a urologist based at University College Hospital London Westmoreland Street. At the appointment I updated him as to my current position with my Artificial Urinary Sphincter and the trials and tribulations that I had been going through o…ver the last couple of months. His immediate focus was drawn to the fact that there may have been cuff erosion and he was concerned that the pain, swelling and discomfort I was having may be signs of this and he was extremely concerned as I could not self catheterise either and I had had a supra pubic catheter put in earlier in the week at Southampton as I had gone into retention. Within ten minutes of him assessing me he had arranged for me to be admitted the following day for a urgent cystoscopy and investigation with the possibility of the removal of the Artificial Urinary Sphinctre under general anaesthetic. I was sent straight to pre-op assessment and bloods and other tests were done straight away. Before leaving the clinic I was ready to go, however I was advised that he could not fit me into the following days theatre list, however they had got me onto the morning list on Thursday. As I live in Hampshire they organised for me to return the following day and arranged overnight accommodation so that I could be admitted at 7.00am and I was first on the list. I was taken into theatre at 8.30am and thankfully there was no cuff erosion, however I had a stricture in my urethra which they sorted out for me straight away. I suppose what I am trying to say is that I have never been treated with the respect and concern that I have had from the team at the hospital. All the way through I was well informed and made to feel important. All the members of the nursing team and everyone I had contact with during this episode were sincere and could not do enough to make sure I was ok. I was dreading the whole scenario as I have had loads of bad experiences in the past at other hospitals. All the staff, and I mean ALL the staff from the receptionist to the canteen staff to the nursing team at University College Hospital London are amazing, they work as a team and treat you with kindness and concern. They are a shinning light in the midst of the chaos of the NHS and other hospitals could take a page from their book and learn a thing or two about patient care, kindness and compassion.
