I was a patient at the Royal Hallamshire hospital cardiology unit with chest pains. The best thing about how I was treated was the kindness and concern of all the staff.
However, I did not like the mixed ward – it was embarrassing and upsetting. I am a male patient and a female patient was getting in and out of bed and I saw more than I should have. It was embarrassing for me and my wife.
I also found it very upsetting that I had to lie in a bed all night next to a lady who had died. I could not sleep.
