Posted by trekaley (as ),
Was admitted to A & E Saturday before Xmas. Paramedics and A & E dept good.
Transferred to Acute Medical Unit as sodium levels very low and put on drip.
However, I have Cardiac & Pulmonary Sarcoidosis, which is rare and my case complex.
I am under the care or Royal Brompton Hospital - being a specialised heart & lung hospital.
A lot of my medication was stopped as my BP low - despite me telling them that the readings were usual for me.
I was given too much fluids as I then became breathless and sats dropped to below 80.
I felt I should have been transferred to a Cardiology ward, and didn't even see a cardiologist during the three days I was there.
Despite me asking, ESH refused to contact Brompton Hospital.
