"Poor treatment - Subsequent severe infection"

I attended Sandwell A&E following a dog bite to my hand.
-the standard of treatment I received whilst attending Sandwell Hospital Accident and Emergency
- the qualification and competence of the individual who treated myself
- the standard of cleanliness in the cubicle where I was treated; blood on the trolley this was conveyed to both staff involved in my treatment - this was not rectified
- the lack of action taken by Duty Manager in Accident and Emergency when I complained directly with them.
Wound was not cleaned throughly at Sandwell A&E - with nurse at my local GP extracting further dog hair
Wound was infected that I had to attend another hospital and have my hand operated on.
I have lost all sensation in my ring finger and have since put in a formal complaint and I am now struggling with the lack of communication from this department.
I hope someone senior at the hospital reads this and makes contact with myself.
