What I liked
What could be improved
more respect given to me
I visit this hospital every 12 weeks or so to have a supra-pubic catheter changed. In October I came away crying at how I had been treated and the unnecessary pain I had been put through.
I have had the catheter for 3 years and never experienced a change as bad as this before. The Sister changed it and "snatched" it out which made me cry out and then left me undressed TWICE while she took phone calls.
I felt like a slab of meat just lying on the bed
I did think about complaining but know that I have to go back again in 12 weeks so was scared to
I did expect more from a Sister
