Spent week in Lilac ward and it made me worse rather than better. I put my trust in these so called health professionals who I felt ignored me. when I did have chance to talk, someone would always come and cut conversation mid way. There were no one to one sessions and when I said this, the nurse blurted out oh I’ll talk to you later! But later never comes. In the end I discharged myself. I feel like the consultant psych didn't give a damn. I went home after exactly one week with no support.
I asked staff to contact my family, which did not happen until three days after admission which caused me agony and upset my carer because in the time following admission (between 3/4 days) no one knew I was in tolworth hospital. The staff’s promises to call never materialised until one member of staff put me out of my constant worry. How does that help a distressed patient driven to a breakdown to end up in nightmareland.
I did not eat or drink for three days as my meds were messed around with, one time prescribed next taken off then reinstated. I Gave up in the end, felt like bashing head against brick wall. staff spend all the time in office or with their 'favourites'. i ended up with no one to talk to, no care plan, and in the end discharged myself when told ward consultant couldn't give a damn. i left without any support.
