0900hrs due to spinal injury and rheumatoid arthritis, unable to move in severe pain ambulance called arrived at Hospital approx 0930, transferred to trolley, 1800hrs lay on trolley unable to move in severe pain, 1810hrs moved to ward. In my opinion most of the staff don't know the meaning of the word communication, most requests were either ignored or take in excess of one hour to comply with, many of the patients have liquid infusion linked up, each of these have an alarm if the medication flow is interrupted, these alarms were sounding 24/7 but patients are prohibited from touching the reset button, sleep was not possible. I dread the day if I need to go back, discharged 6 days later.
