"ward 28 Lgh"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

Admitted via gp, waited 6hrs to see a dr 8 hrs for a cannula. hardly ever saw a qualifed nurse apart from handover and drug round. I was fairly able the poor elderly ladies were not, one had a really bad fall and it was the nursing auxiliary who dealt with it. she then asked for 5hrs for pain relief none came and despite hitting her head, no dr. she got admittted at 8am and at 3 was still waiting for a dr despite the fall. Never had a arm band on during admission and one night woke up to a nurse given me a iv drug this is so wrong. It appeared the auxiliary s ran the ward. Ward was dirty when got took to bed it had crisps etc from the previous patient.
