"a bad experience on peggy cole ward"

About: Ipswich Hospital

(as the patient),

Well, when I got admitted to the Peggy Cole ward, the nurses were lovely. However, they couldn’t get my medication, which was a bad start... Then they did forget to give me medication and one night a nurse gave me 35 mls of morphine, when actually i was on 5ml or 10ml! and it made me feel terrible! Some staff hadn’t put down when I had medication, so when the nurses changed over they tried giving me more. Even though my specialist couldn't see me, they made no effort for me too see anybody else. It took my mum to keep pestering the hospital for me to get an emergency appointment. Overall a bad experience all round. I would not go back there.
