"My experience of been there 5 weeks"

I was on orchard assessment.The staff were never understanding I wanted to leave straight away when I hot there I ended been sectioned for 21 days. I told the doctor when I hot there that I had asthma yet find not get prescribed my inhaler hill after 3 weeks of been there and having an asthma attack. The majority if the staff were very rude. Not a lot of staff understood how you felt and would tell you to get a grip of your self if you were feeling down. I think the staff should be abut more considerate. Also when I was in the chicer I had a male member of staff walk into my room which I thought was really bad. When you had local access and hadn't been out in 5 days and then you wanted to go out the staff would say there isn't enough staff. Which to be fair there was 3/4 members if staff on the unit at Oenone home to 7 patients that most times needed someone to talk to. At one point on my time on the unit there was no members of staff on the assessment died at all and someone did pass out and they didn't know about and myself and other patients had go press the alarm.
