"Poor treatment; lack of listening; failed to read hospital records properly"

About: Heartlands Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I was admitted to the heartlands hospital after having epileptic seizure. kept being put back in the corridor, then was moved to ward twenty. no one read notes and told me when I was dazed to walk when I suffer with todds paraylis. nearly fell out bed. nurse caught me. then moved to ward 22. tried telling the doctor my current medication who didn't listen stating I could stay in n speak to my neurologist on Monday. sunday came they discharged me with no movement in my leg, couldn't move it. had physio who kindly gave me crutches as he agreed no movement in leg. discharged on same amount of medication as when admitted. doctors did not listen at all they forgot to give my medication. not happy at all.
