I was due an operation as a day case on Ward 19 - This was a great ward, great checking in - had my own private room. Start to finish was excellent. All set for home and a rash appeared all over me - I was asked to stay in for a further 2 hours to keep an eye on this - I was then transferred to ward 18 - what a difference in two wards. No Doctor showed to see me, when she did she was no help - she arrived at 1.00am where both myself & hubby sat there wondering if we could go home. The Doctor advised I stay in … Pain relief just wasn't taken care off, you need to keep asking the nurses constantly - I was in tears. The morning staff that took over today I have never met such a rude nurse - just listen to me she kept saying in a loud voice, I wasn't offered any help with anything - I felt for the older people on the ward keep buzzing. I was offered no help to leave - I needed a wheelchair they just wasn't interested. My hubby searched for a chair for me, whilst he went to get the car he left me in the chair and I took unwell, a lady came to my rescue, she advised me to leave this review. I think she said she worked in patient care.. Thankyou so much for helping me Would i ever want to return to Ward 18 - Not a chance. What started out as a great experience on Ward 19 - Ward 18 was a very upsetting experience!
