"My partner left the ward"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

(as other),

My partner  was admitted to Medway hospital after relapsing on alcohol due to the stress of her father dying and having to deal with the EPA. She drank so much that after not eating for 6 days she started to be sick from 8am till 4am when she was admitted to the high dependency ward after being on drips and ecg she was told they were moving her to the will adams ward then she was told instead it was the keats ward. No one told her or asked if it was ok to be moved to a mans ward to be shut in her own room behind closed doors with a commode in the room with a male nurse emptying it, sue suffers from colitus and is a carrier of c-diff and was on antibiotic. She has walked out of hospital because she was so scared and not to mention her dignity. Staff refused to get my partner in a female ward, she wasn't even asked in the first place, They seemed happy for her to leave an said it doesn't matter if she doesn't sign discharge papers. My partner has left the hospital because she felt so unsafe,

If my partner ends up back in hospital I blame Medway hospital for refusing to help in any way. I intend to make sure the whole country reads my story and the story 2 years ago also the replies. I intend making more than a complaint a lot more.
