"Left me in hysterics on ward"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

First night admitted explained I required specified medication as otherwise I become ill quickly.

Waiting over 5 hours for this still no success

writhing in pain crying and nurse just stomps through and huffs "what's a matter"

explained I'm in agony and have bad nausea. nurse just shrugs and said doctor is busy you will just have to cope

tempted to self discharge and sort myself out

waited 6 hours this morning following an ultrasound

truly have had enough. awful service and concerned that some areas had last cleaned stickers from 1 month ago.
