"Worse stay ever"

About: Furness General Hospital

I had an operation this year at Furness I have been to this hospital before and they were excellent. But this time with being so understaffed the care was nil I was sick straight after the op throwing up constantly even when I returned home for about 5 days after the op ,I was not offered refreshments ie tea or toast so I had nothing to eat at all even though I stayed in over night .i never even got to go to the bathroom or walked around the ward to see if I was ok. I have never been like this after an operation in my life ! The nurse who said would be looking after me booked me in and was never seen again.
