At the time of writing this I am waiting for my mother in law to be seen by a social worker and a psychiatrist she has been in your A&E department since around 2.30 pm on 7th July, it is now 00.50 am on the 8th July and she has still not been seen properly or assessed and my husband and his brother are still at the hospital this is after a long gruelling day at work, and they have to work later this morning.
Its not good enough. No information from the nurses chatting at the nurses station the dr in charge of my mother in law has gone AWOL and no information is forthcoming.
My husband also has epilepsy and will shortly need his medication and that is here at home.........my mother in law is becoming more fractious and she needs help now not when some member of your staff can be bothered to get out of bed and stroll into the department.
This is distressing not only for her but also for her sons who are with her, they have no wish to see their mother so distressed because staff members are not doing the job they paid to be doing.
Not impressed at all by any of the staff there right now
