"Nurse said she was too busy to treat my sister"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

(as a relative),

My sister is on amu ward with terminal cancer and was shocked and appalled at the rudeness of some of the nurses! One nurse in particular left my sister with no oxygen for hours, they gave her wrong medication that made her look like she was buzzing. Was hallucinating and pulling out her needles and still none of them helped!

She said she was too busy to treat my sister and was rude to all the family. It's disgusting that your hospital allows these rude people to continue working in such a sensitive situation. I'll also be making a complaint through my m. p
