"Zone 4 maternity assesment"

About: Newham General Hospital

I went in to zone 4 after falling down and being vomiting continuously for the past day. the doctor prescribed injections to stop the vomiting and advised if it continued to be transferred to a ward for an IV drip. I vomited a further 4 times while waiting. To be told that there was no bed after waiting for 6 hours. I got tired of waiting for someone to see me and asked for my notes and went home. Horrible patient care
