"Don't want to be put in that situation again"
Posted by Flawed (as ),
My home was flooded and I was taken in to Calderdale Royal with acute abdonial pains/ vomitting post emergency liver transplant. I thought it was a nightmare for me from start to finish.
1. Ambulance man shared his opinion with me of who he thought deserves a liver transplant and who does not on route to hospital.
2. I arrived before 3pm but was told I was too late to hand in my important, though my property had been flooded so had all important documents on me as workmen were in property when ambulance arrived.
3. I was still there at 11pm as I was waiting for blood results. I saw a couple opposite get into bed with each other. I asked a doctor for sleeping tablets as I was finding it very noisy in the ward. I had kept my important documents under a single pillow. I had asked for two due to lack of stomach muscles, but I was not given it.
4. At 2am a patient was admitted to the next bed who I overheard had taken an overdose of asthma medication. They had with them a family of about 4 - 6 people round them. No doctor had come yet.
5. At 3.30am I was really tired so I went for a smoke. When I returned the ward was locked, so I slept on a trolley outside the ward for about 30mins.
6. At 4.15 ward opened and I was still unable to sleep and I could not find a doctor available.
7. At 7.15 woken for morning routine.
8. At 12.30am I was discharged to my parents, who gave me a row for letting my home flood. I was given no diagnosis of nausea/vomiting.
Conclusion: would rather not be put in that situation again.
