"Ward 14"

About: King's Mill Hospital

I had a high temperature (fever)

chills and shivering

a fast heartbeat

fast breathing

feeling dizzy or faint

confusion or disorientation

nausea and vomiting

cold, clammy and pale or mottled skin

Kings mill nurses and doctors didn't pick up on it at all, I had sepsis and my body was close to closing down, they left me for 6 hours with only having had a xray then later having a ct scan 2 hours later to find out I had a kidney stone with sepsis on top. How can they miss with all my symptoms I had the life threatening illness, they just left me in the bed without any help other than pain killers but that wasn't taking the pain off so they should of known it was a kidney stone
