"My Son Discharged too soon!"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

Admitted to Blackburn Hospital via Ambulance with severe pain and vomiting. Ward B2 cared well particularly one Male Nurse Kept one night and discharged the following day despite feeling very unwell . A good neighbour drove 15 miles to take him home! Only 2 days later taken by Ambulance back to Blackburn. He could hardly stand and was vomiting continuously. Admitted to Ward C2 and discharged on the third day. Medication was always late(Sometimes 3 hours) due to Nurses standing about chatting about their Holidays, Social Life etc or criticising their Colleagues. Never again Blackburn!
