THE letter from Robert Willoughby regarding the food being served to patients at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital ( The Advertiser, 11/1/18) makes sobering reading.
It’s all about bean-counting (literally) as cutting expenditure would appear to trump quality of nourishment, to the extent that Mr Willoughby’s family had to resort to the third world practice of relatives providing food to hospitalised family members.
Regarding being issued with a complaint number and not yet hearing from anyone, it could be, given the situation, that Mr Willoughby is in a very long queue of complainants, all awaiting their turn for the hospital’s response. DEBORAH MORRISON,
Malvern East. that there was an average wait of around 15 minutes on the call bell. My other complaint was the malfunctioning airconditioning and a lack of effort to fix it.
My room was absolutely freezing and I needed four blankets each night.
A technician who came in to look at it shook his head and suggested the nurse open my window to counteract the airconditioning.
The staff on the whole, though, were very good, but seemed to be very understaffed. YVONNE MILBANK, Modbury North. sculptures with nails driven in to them, various sexually explicit art works and stuff of our worst nightmares.
Maybe I missed the sign saying not suitable for children? Anyway, we always love the museum. SONYA LOVE, Sheidow Park.
