Queasy like a Sunday morning

Hi All

Just had a quick chat with Belinda key points of which are:

1. A patient "with mental health issues" roams the wards at lights out standing at the end of everyones beds - not conducive to restful sleep

2. Said patient screams when restrained by staff - ditto

3. A reduction of pain relief by the staff means the lymph node wound site has become extremely painful - ditto x 2

4. The pain relief caused B a bout of sickness this morning

So, a less happy bunny than yesterday.

I know hospitals at weekends are on skeleton staff with senior physicians hard to get hold of, but after an op like this (with the emotional issues it carries) the ward seems to be struggling to cope...

More later
