"Ultra sound"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital / Maternity care

I recently was admitted to hospital and was sent for a ultra sound in the maternity department, this was one of the most uncomfortable and embarrassing moments of my life.I was taken down by a lovely nurse from my ward to be left in the care well is say care the sonographers did not care, to say they were not happy is a understatement they were so rude,patronising and unhelpful I had to listen to one of the sonographers shouting down the phone to staff on my ward clearly about me in a waiting room full of people I was in agony, very embarrassed and upset. I struggled to walk dress and undress at no point did the sonographer help or show any concern . I have never left a review but they were truly awful.
