My sister was admitted today, Sat 5th April, with severe back and chest pain. When the Triarge nurse came to assess her, she was in acute pain and couldn't breath. My sister's pain and anguish obviously irritated her and she threw her sheet down and said she would return when my sister calmed down! What arrogance! My sister was extremely distressed, had difficulty getting her breath and was very frightened. She was then left for 1 1/4 hours before she returned. I would like to say, that her arrogance could have well cost my sister her life. My sister, was later, that day diagnosed with pneumonia & and a blood clot on her lung. I am still seething with anger and intend to make an official complaint.
