"Very unhappy"

About: York Hospital

Anything else?

I was rushed into York hospital last night as I collapsed twice and could not breath propley as we got to the hospital we was told to sit down and wait so we did about half an hour later I could not hold my self up or catch my breath one horrible and rude nurse came over and told me to stop been so melodramatic we was not treated with respect at all she was so rude another nurse came and wheeled me trow the back she was ok but came across like she did not wont to help and told me to "gett out the wheel chair because I do not need it any more" then I was told there was a 5 hour wait to been seen by a doctor while we was waiting there was a little girl who had 3 opean heart oparation who had been waiting 3 hour to been see and was still waiting to be seen she was not seen as top prioritie , over all my vist was horrible I think I would rather go to Leeds hospital were I might be treated with more respect I was in York hospital 5 hours waiting to be seen in the end I was so tired and weak I had to go on as I was 8th in line to be seen so that was a 4 hour wait I had an emergence doctors appointment today they found out I have extrely low blood pressure and need to have blood test the doctor I saw today was so disgusted in York hospital and could not belive they had not taken my bloods I pay my taxes to pay for that I think if they are not happy in there job and can not treat people with respect then find a new job I will be filling a complaint in about the rude nure/doctor as she should be sacked she did not wont to be there to help people what a waste off taxes I would not advise anyone to go there in a emergency as you would not be considered a emergency and would probley have to wait 6 hours or more
