"The Drs listened to me and gave ..."

About: North Manchester General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The Drs listened to me and gave me time to ask questions. They were reassuring and understanding. If they said they were going to do something they did it.

What could be improved

One nurse was rude and judgmental. She made a decision about my condition and failed to assess me and treat me appropiatly. She failed to listen to the Dr's ambulance crew and other nurses into my medical history and gave me a treatment that is no longer recommended nor appropiate (breathing into a paperbag)

Anything else?

I was left for nearly an hour with a used comode in my bay with the certains closed with no one checking on me even when drip alarms went off. The mointours were beeping and no one would check on me or silence them.
