"6 hours waiting for angiocath"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

. I was waiting in bed from 7 pm to 1 am for someone to come and attach angiocath to my arm. I asked more than 6 times but every time staff just told me leave it to me. Finally a nurse came at 1am, she said she was not aware, and she is from another ward. It is so unprofessional and careless.
