I am absolutely disgusted what I have seen yesterday (19/07/2016) at A&E. Obliviously we know there are long waits (over 9 hrs ) but to examine a young girl in her underwear in the waiting room in front of a packed waiting room is beyond shocking. Another patient was examined by the vending machines, in front of everyone. . There were old people in corridors that were begging for help to go to the toilet and were told to wait. The old man ended up going to the toilet in his trolley in the middle of the obs area in front of everyone, after having the nurse berate him because he needed the toilet. What dignity is that?
Old people who had been on trolleys for over 9 hrs and weren't even offered water. One of the most disgusting things I saw was a conversation with a senior nurse who told another nurse "don't bother doing bloods, he looks fine" even though the patient was assaulted, had a head injury and passed out.
I have to admit the dr my dad saw was amazing and respectful but he was the only one that was.
