"disgusting"

About: South Tyneside District Hospital

Anything else?

My stay at this hospital was truley horrendous. Uncommunicative staff. Was being treat for wrong illness! Went into room I was given and there was a used sanitary towel in the fridge!! Blood from previous patient on floor. Canulator left in for over a week-I got an infection in my arm due to this. Staff ignored me and when I closed my curtain when on a bay I was told it had to be left open... I wanted some privacy to get changed, but that wasnt allowed, I had to go to bathroom to do so when I was told I had to stay immobile. Staff lied when I confronted tgem about certain complaints. Not to mention I had misdiagnosis of dvt. Would reccommend noone came to this shocking hospital willingly. I have made a complaint about this in past bt receved no feedback. I wont try again. Just want tonmake others aware
