I had suffered a mis-carriage in 2010 where in A&E was made to feel like id completly wasted time i was in distress and pain and the sho asked me what i wanted him to do. As im not a medical professional i did not know?. And never suffering a miscarriage i also did not know what to expect.
I then suffered another miscarriage in november 2012 where A&E staff where better but i was sent EPU where i was treated like a piece dirt an annoyance i was so hurt and made to feel yet again i was wasting their time i also had a sever kidney infection and they eventually tested me for uti's or ecptopic pregnancy to which when they got the result i was given a presciption with no explanation as to why i needed to take antiotics just told to hurry uop and get to pharmacy as it was closing!. I asked the staff at EPU why they felt the need to treat me like this as i wasnt aggressive,rude or done anything to inflict this upon myself as i kept being told it was 'natures way' and they couldnt answer me.
I felt let down and dissapointed that i myself work here and yet was treated with such disrespect and undignity i feel that no matter whether you work here or not we should all be treated the same. I still cry at these hurtful memories and i do not cast any blame on them for me losing the babies but a little compassion doesnt hurt anybody with out it why are we doing this job : (
