Taken to hospital by ambulance, after collapsing at home, for blood transfusions, and an endoscopic examination of my stomach, to find the source of the bleeding.
I was left to wait, with nil by mouth for 20 hours with no information as to when I would be treated.
The hospital staff I met were very casual. I wanted food, so the endoscope exam was cancelled.
At 4am I had blood transfusions, and had to return to get the endoscope exam.
I felt the hospital was run for the doctors convenience. It was an awful experience - so much time wasting and procrastinating.
