"Terrible experience - never again"

About: Whiston Hospital

Anything else?

My inpatient stay for a broken arm operation was worst experience ever, after arriving to no bed on ortho ward at 8am, off to another ward, didn't go down until 5pm, having fasted and having medical condition that needs sugar balance up. Then being cast in a full cast too tight, requiring re-cast next day, Put on bed that slid across floor, arm grabbed, as no break on bed! Left all day with no underwear on! And blood on gown from op. Having to ask nurse could she change me. No Dr came to me after surgery to say exactly what had been done, even tho I requested until discharged. Ao basically put on another ward and forgotten about. Disgraceful! Complaint following.
