What I liked
nothing at all !!
What could be improved
I was at the A&E department with my 82 year old Father who was passing an unacceptable ammount of blood in his urine via his catheter, I feel the way he was treated was disgusting to say the least . All attention was paid to the BUPA section around the corner this was spotless! I know because my Father was taken in there by mistake. The area he ended up in was disgustingly filthy -- there was blood and rubbish all over the floor ! Call themselves accident and emergency ! It was 2 hours before an 82 year old man was seen by the same Doctor treating the BUPA patients.There was a Staff Nurse there with the most vile cough taking his details, I nearly took him away there and then ! After 4 hours they washed their hands of him and sent him to Stepping Hill where he wasn't treated any better I have yet to inform them how disgusted I am with them.
I feel that for someone who has contributed all his working life contributing to the NHS he could have been treated with a little more dignity and respect.AccidentsUrinary catheterisationAttentiveCleanlinessDignityOpening hoursAccident and emergencyDoctorsNursing staff
