"Wait in A and E"
About: Royal Berkshire Hospital Royal Berkshire Hospital Reading RG1 5AN
Brought mum in on advice of 111 after waiting all day for advice and help to deal with leaking ileostomy , burning skin - when asked if mum could lie down after waiting almost 2hours - was told there are no beds in the hospital. Mum has been 95o/o bedridden for 18 months and needs to lie down as sitting makes leaking worse . I wasn't even allowed to explain this properly and told that we has to wait with sitting in wheelchair that took 2hours to get her into . Patient care ? I didn't ask for her to be seen 'now' - just allowed to lie down !
