I have a number of very serious conditions and very closely timed medication, however medication is taken from you and then tablets etc handed out when staff see fit rather than according to time. This has caused serious and life threatening consequences, despite asking for tablets numerous times. On another occasion although eventually emergency medication was provided, it was a long time coming and again serious consequences. The time up until the doctor arrived I was treated as a very elderly Alzheimer patient, rather then someone looking at my age and thinking confusion might be a symptom. Once on the observation ward nurses and doctors very good and very helpful, however we still have the tablet timing problem. The last problem is the discharge letter - this appears to be written from imagination and that went to my consultant and GP.
