I went into the Urgent Care Center with an abscess which was incredibly painful and I hadn't slept in 3 days because of it. The male nurse I saw was rude and unhelpful he told me that me being there was inappropriate because I was on antibiotics (for 3 weeks, which hadn't improved the situation). He refused to do anything. The next day I was admitted to hospital via A&E because the infection had spread, my temperature was extremely high, my blood pressure too. My heart rate was through the roof, they had me on IV Antibiotics and fluids for 2 days. They then drained the abscess under local anesthetic.
