"The ambulance service was first ..."

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked The ambulance service was first class. A&E first class. HELL FOLLOWS:- What could be improved? I Have had the misfortune of being admitted several times in recent months and heap praise on those whom assist within A&E where treatment was A1. HOWEVER. you may be in store for an AWFULL SHOCK if they keep you in an ASSESMENT WARD .PLEASE READ ON. All the hard work carried out in A&E goes out of the window. Numberous areas seem to exist under this name ASSESMENT.. Numberous "nurses" Are on the payroll for this nightshift but seem to spend their time either playing computer games or watching TV . Oblivious to the calls of incontinent dehydrated patients (the customer) Example: I was supposed to be on a monitor overnight, however no staff seemed to know quite how to connect it!!!! As dawn rose staff began trying to set a world record in bed/patient cleansing.THE STENCh WAS AWFULL as soiled items was placed in bins under the open windows within the ward. After this performance by staff a doctor tours the ward to,excuse the phrase,prey on patients, who they feel may live on.They will then proceed to discharge (without sustinence) them. Needless to say a large number of those with probable ongoing illness return within days critical. It is quite HEART BREAKING. As I have witnessed this on more than one occasion. I have little doubt this is the tip of an NHS iceberg. What I have written hear is but a snippit of what I have seen Nonetheless I expose my radical but honest opinion. Doubtless the powers that be will endeavor to ignor or persecute me for this exposure. Please let them be aware. My fear is gone and my full statement is archived forever. Though I suspect damn all will happen due to the nature of mankind. I pray "as one sows one shall reap" No speciffic staff are to blame It is quite simply "THE SYSTEM" who made you. Anything else? I realise I put myself in awkward and vulnerable position by giving exposure to this fragment of truth. NONETHELESS IT IS RECORDED IN FULL ELSEWHERE AND YES I AM WILLING TO PUBLISH!
