Your experience may have been a bad one, but it is not the case with all hospitals. Recently at a London hospital I found all the beds to be working perfectly; nursing staff were busy - but could still attend to patients with kindness and consideration (and I witnessed one nurse take more than 30 minutes answering the many questions an elderly patient asked her about her medications which were being dispensed; painkillers were dispensed as and when appropriate/required; WCs, showers etc all working OK; lifts also OK - but during very busy periods there was a need to wait (usually around 3 mins).
As an aside, there was an article in one of the Sunday papers pointing out that the uptake of 'flu vaccine by some staff at a number of hospitals is abysmally low. Given that we need all the staff possible to be operational during times of peak demand, I find it difficult to understand the rationale of some staff to forego the opportunity to have the 'flu jab.
