"Bad experience with doctors"

About: The Royal London Hospital

Anything else?

I had toenail injury at home, went to hospital on sunday 2pm, had terrible pain and lot of bleeding. They did xray, and i was waiting for doctor to see me to 7pm, only nurse took care of me, doctor didnt come. Gave me painkillers and did dressingbon my big toe. 8 pm they broght me upstairs on the 3D room and i had to stay over night. First they sayd plastic doctor has to see it, then orthopaeadic....consultant doctor finelly arrived 11pm to see me, he sayd i need surgary couse of fracture. Next day, doctor called department and nurse told me i dont need it. I was happy not to go to surgary. They were treating me with antibiotics and painkillers. Nurses took very good care of me, only doctors didnt come to see me.They promissed me every day, i can go home and doctor is gonna see my toe, and is gonna do dressing and i dont need to stay. I was really dissapointedand upset, that noone came to see my wound from sunday, and no doctor was doing my papierwork to go home:-( Every time they were suprissed when i sayd, doctor didnt see me yet. I know they are bussy and short of stuff but, i think every patient deserve 5-10 minutes with doctor,if u need it..
