"Disgusted patient from H5"

About: Salford Royal

I was transfered to Salford Royal via the out of hours doctor. I was put on ward H5 I had to wait five days for an ultrasound scan ! Then I waited two days for treatment. I was given a drain and told it would be taken out in five hours however 30 hours later the drain is still in me no doctor has been to review it. I was informed nobody will be available to look at my drain until Monday as there is only one doctor available for the whole hospital all weekend ?? !!! Very strange ! I was refused pain relief and told I didn't need to see a doctor as my pain was under control but I am telling them I am in pain. My bra was taken out of the bathroom and when I told the staff I was told I signed a form so it is my responsibility !!!!!! Yet I was having my drain put in in a different part of the hospital. I alerted the lead nurse who told me she was on her way but two hours later I am still waiting. There are so many things Wrong with the care here I can not possibly cover it in this post. However I am absolutely disgusted with my care and treatment at Salford Royal to say the least !.
