"Dirty, dangerous and SLOW!"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Took 3 days to perform an ultrasound scan after being admitted! I was placed in a dirty room next to a over flowing sharps bin used needles on the side, the floor was covered in rubbish and one member of staff even shouted at me for being in pain! took 3 hours to even find my notes!

This all started on Surgical assessment unit! ward 8!
