"appalling weekend care"

About: Charing Cross Hospital

we visited a patient today who had fallen whilst getting into bed - she was still in shock and shaking when we arrived but there was no nurse/doctor at the station for the whole time we were there.

Patient was supposed to have an X-ray today which never happened, but we couldn't find out why because there was no one to speak to.

We pressed the buzzer for a drink but had to wait 20mins for an orderly who had no empathy or understanding of the situation, I will be complaining tomorrow when there is someone to complain to. I am totally appalled that patients are treated with such disrespect.
