"I was treat like a dog"

Last night I was detained after 3 hours at a&e I finally came here with two police officers...on the way they welcomed I knew I had be in for a shocking night after they left basically I was left in a room with foor walls and a grubby bathroom staff were calling me a silly girl for crying I was highly emotional they were no epathy I feel like a dog on a cage they left me for hours all I could do was scream I am asthmatic they wouldn't even let me have my inhaler every single night staff ruse with no empathy even to one point I asked a question and one of the staff kisses her teeth how very rude so 4 hrs in the horrible doom I felt like a prisoner and my paranoia made this worse so after 4 hrs a lovely Dr came in and they re assured me won't beuch longer for discharge the whole way through my interview a staff member was giving me a dirty luck

These staff have no empathy I feel abused and treats lik a prisoner staff like this shouldn't work here and I will consider reporting this further
