Day care staff were fab, although I don't think it's professional seeing doctors drinking out of pop bottles. The doctor who attended to me couldn't be fault erred, I had extremely high blood pressure, pain in the arm and back, I had good pain relief and the male nurse that administered it was fantastic his name was dale.
It was decided after my tests to admit me to a cardiac ward as I suffer from mitral regurgitation, I was still in a and e and was told by the doctors I was going to firth 7.
I was still on a and e at 11pm two doctors came on shift and examined me and discharged me, I was waiting for pain drugs till midnight!
I can't understand why I was discharged as I was in pain and it was midnight after been told I was going to a cardiac ward.....pathetic!
The areas were dirty bloody cotton wool all over , I wasn't asked if I wanted a drink! And I saw old people laid on trolleys for hours not toileted or offered drinks! But the drunk in e18 did! Maybe coz he was effin and blinding. Your hospital is a sham and I will take to the papers, very disgusted patient .
