"Serious incidents"

About: The Whittington Hospital

I had an emergency cesarean one year ago and had several serious incidents. Some of them not so serious: - my midwife was rude and I did not feel cared - after the operation the only thing I was needing to getting better was to sleep and that was imposible because somebody was coming and awakening me up every 40 minutes to check on something. Also on the recovering ward ,midwifes were talking on the phone during the night and making lot of noise so it was very hard to sleep. So I practicaly didn`t sleep during 4 days. Some of them very serious: - during the nurse change over, they were going to give our baby antibiotics that he didn´t need - I was going to receive a blood transfusion that fortunately I didn´t receive when the doctor they realize that it was for another patient - the baby hand´t been given a name tag so he could have been taken out of the hospital
