I was admitted to ward 19 for the first time in my life. I was shown to my room which I was told to stay there. I was upset but no-one seemed to care, the room was very bland which I wanted to leave as the room was horrible. The toilet was disgusting, the walls very broken and horrible.
The nurse then came to see me and was very stubborn, seemed that they didn't really care how I felt. I was made to stay in the room until someone came to see me. If the rooms were more positive then it would help peoples mental health. I felt that I didn't get the support I thought I would have. The food was disgusting there wasn't really a choice especially if you are a fussy eater. Some of the staff were helpful, some of them weren't. While I was in there I was told my b12 was low as well which it was the first I had ever been told. I was told I was to get a loading dose for 2 weeks of 5 injection then every 3 months after that. I was also told I had a infection in my urine but never followed that up by giving me anything. I have been out nearly 2 weeks now and not had a phone call or told what I need to do, which I feel as if I have been left to do things on my own now.
