I work closely with CQC and am clear of the role of the healthcare professionals. During my visit to A&E on the 27th December I observed inefficiencies, malpractice, bad practice, a lack of patient centred care, a break down in communication and not following through with critical information. Bloods were taken with no gloves, sensitive information regarding patient name and conditions was being discussed in my presence, inefficiencies of resources used, consent was not gained for the attempted administration of medication, the repeating of symptoms over 5 times creating an undue surge in pressure which hospital officials attempted to medicate, this I refused. I would approach this hospital with care and attention, question the practice before allowing these individuals to take your care into their hands. I still await a call about concerns regarding a CT Scan.
