About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

Anything else?

My mum cut her finger really badly on a glass at home and as she has Type 1 Diabetes and on aspirin and has various things wrong with her, we went straight to A&E, we got there and had to wait 40 Minutes then when we actually got to see somebody they didnt have a clue what they were doing and was arrogant with the nurse helping, the nurse was very nice and knew what she was doing but the docor was horrible. My mum had stitches in her hand. Then a week later her hand got worse and we had to take her to the doctor who told her that whoever put the stitches in did them wrong!
