"disguting lack of care and attention."

About: University Hospital Of North Tees

Anything else?

Would not subject my worst enemy to the care of this hospital. Neglected and uncared for does not even begin to describe how I felt while seriously ill. Adequate medication was not supplied and staff failed to notice that I hadn't been able to eat for a full 3 days while there. And considering I was already underweight this could have been fatal. Certain staff were quite frankly unacceptably rude and other patients where left to suffer. I found myself havingto help elderly patients (despite my own condition) because the night staff felt it was acceptable to leave an old lady lying on the floor in pain for more than half an hour. And thenhad the cheek to yell at me.for helping the poor woman. Rude and uncaring staff that should not be looking after vulnerable people
