"i like nothing about my stay in ..."

About: Pontefract General Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

i like nothing about my stay in pontefact hospital...my doc wanted me to go as i had a severe headach which she wanted checked out. the AnE got me sorted with a bed quickly which was good i went onto ward 4 (mau) which i was sorted out ok. but the pain in my head was gettin worse an worse i asked for pain killers i asked a nurse an she sed she would get some none came i buzzed for the nurse 3 times still no one came only for almost a hour an half later i had to get out of bed an ask yet again. in the morn i needed more pain relief an agian it took almost 2 hrs b4 i recieved any an i hated askin all the time because they made me feel as i was bothering them there was other things that bothered me but to much to type on here i jsut found my total stay that i was a inconvience to be there an when u dont feel well u really dont need to be made to feel like that

What could be improved

by training the staff at that hospital that people who actually go there are normally there because they are needed to be there not because they want a break from home...i certainly needed to be there because i didnt know what was causing my severe headaches
