"Dreadful hospital"

About: Poole General Hospital

I have had to displeasure of being in this hospital several times ! My partner was admitted due to chronic pain in his back causing an already long standing illness to give him seizures !! I went to visit the next day only to find he was very nearly in a diabetic coma !! The nurse said oh you didn't say he was diabetic !! Umm yes I did !! Perhaps if they spent less time on playing cards on the computer and more time looking at patients medication when admitted they would know !! They discharged my partner when he couldn't stand up with out having a seizure !! He was whisked down the hallway in a wheelchair and I was told to take him home and he could lie down in the back seat of the car !! Against the law but you could not of cared less !!

To think this hospital treats humans is beyond a joke !! IT SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN AND MANAGEMENT SACKED !!
