I was in hospital over night with an inflamed appendix and during my stay in hospital I was put on a drip, I had two bags of Sodium Chloride through the time I was there but once my second bag was drained, I was waiting for around 5 and a half Hours before they removed the second bag after it had drained, baring in mind I was NBM during my stay. During the time the bag was empty I had a visit from the ward matron, nurses and doctor and had informed them that my drip was empty, but it was not until it was almost visiting time that they finally removed the drip from my hand. Then after being told I was no longer NBM I was left without food as the nurse failed to remove the NBM note on my bed so I was left without any food at tea time whilst all the other patients were given their dinner, instead my partner had to go down to the Hospital shop to get me a sandwich and some crisps just so that I had something to eat. Around half an hour before being discharged (around 6.30pm) I was offered cold chips that they had not plated up, to which I declined.
