"Appalling hospial"

About: Scarborough General Hospital

While in Scarborough hospital, Coronary Care Uni after a heart attack, I was woken at 11pm and moved into a side ward, then moved at 4am back onto the CCU ward, then was put into a storage room because i wasn't happy that a dead woman was in the bed next to me, i was told i was selfish by the ward sister, i then was subjected to watching a old man die, which i have never seen before in my life, i am 55, female. They refused to close the curtain around myself and the dying man, who was directly across from myself, i am now considering my options on the treatment on this hospital!
