"A&E disgusting care."

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

A&E was terrible. No caring support unless you are over the age of 60 (obviously due to press coverage at other NHS Hospitals staff are warned to treat elderly well). I was rushed in as i was having a miscarriage, i was told it may be eptopic and to go to A&E if bleeding and pain got severe. The staff left me alone for hours on a plastic hair, no water, no bed made up, nothing. Nobody came to ask if i were ok. The nurse who put a canular in dropped the top and i bled all over myself. No apology. She hurt me too. Nobody seemed to communicate well and the doctor was yawning his head off and vague. The only member of staff i came across who was caring was a long time nurse. She was very very skilled in 'care'. She'd only popped in to do my Obs 3 hours after i arrived. I wish i could take all the names of the staff who were bad and name and shame them. They all, including the Doctor could do with following this nurse around for the day and learning what caring is about. Disgusting.
