"What does TIDY mean?"

About: Mid Western Regional / Orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had a broken shin & ankle and was finding it difficult to do any thing never mind cross to the bathroom pre op. When I was hopping back via use of a zimmer frame.. she (HCA) told me the ward was TIDY.. referring to her tidying my bed.. only that I was in so much pain I can tell you.

I am employed with the HSE myself the last 34yrs and only for the Patients we would not have job's... some of the staff need to be taught manner's in all grade's.
