What I liked
Nothing at all - it was a very stressful experience.
What could be improved
On 11/09/2012.i got chest pains and was sent to a&e by my doctor at approx 3.30 p.m. I then went to MAAU at approx 4.15 p.m. I eventually had my b.p. checked and some bloods taken (around 10-11 p.m.) and was then told to go back to the day room and wait to see a doctor. I enquired several times as to where I was in the queue and by 3 a.m. was still at no. 5 in the queue (when I had my bloods done I was at No. 6 in the queue). At this point I decided I could stand no more. My partner took me to a local supermarket for some Ibupropen as I had not had any pain relief since I was in triage many hours earlier and I was in pain. All in all I felt worse then when I arrived! I was also appauled to meet an 82 year old gentleman who was in MAAU from 3 p.m to 2 a.m. when he was finally transferred to a ward! What a disgusting way to treat such an elderly person!
You should look at replacing your Management and finding some who can organise things better. There is only room for improvement.
