I was unfortunate enough to attend the A&E department for a complication following gallbladder surgery where I was suffering with severe chest pains. The standard of care received from this department was appalling and I intend on formerly complaining. The level of service from the Dr's and Nurses in question was disgusting and im still feeling the after effects with a damaged nerve 6 days on from an attempted blood test on one arm and a small swelling on the other arm from another failed blood test. The lack of empathy and care just wasn't acceptable with nurses asking me to undress in plain site of waiting patients. Leaving me in the middle of a hallway whilst a porter and x ray specialist argued over what gown i should be wearing and not offering any pain medication or anti sickness tablets until i was leaving the department 6 hours later. I appreciate the NHS is under enourmous amounts of stress these days but there is no excuse for bad manners and lack of basic care.
