"I didn't feel involved in my care"

I felt I wasn't listened to or involved in my care at all. I felt ignored a lot of the time. It seemed like the doctor was only interested in moving people on as soon as possible because of the bed shortage situation, instead of actually wanting to help people get better. I honestly felt like the staff were plotting against me.
