About: Torbay Hospital

While on holiday my wife had to be taken to the hospital where we eventually got seen to after loosing a lot of blood through a severe nose bleed which could not be stopped eventually it did they sent us back to the Hotel on which it started again back to hospital sent out again next day back to hospital eventually somebody decided to do something by putting balloon bungs up her nose in all this time my wife was losing blood through her mouth and eyes ( no I am not exaggerating) in all this time I had to mop up the blood and put the swabs in the blood bin,when a doctor saw this they said why is there blood coming out of you eyes I said you are the doctor not me. Even threy said we will give it a while and you can go back to the Hotel them saying this I could just not believe their superior arrived and told them they could not send anyone home in that state,my wife was them sent to a ward which was a godsent because a,e is an absolute distance.
