"I have been admitted 1 and had to wait until 8 on..."

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Birmingham)

I have been admitted 1 pm. and had to wait until 8 pm. for mattress and bed. There was beds in corridors but nobody rushed to help me made me sit on the chair for 7 hours ! I have stayed in the hospital for five days. Doctor who done ultrasound was not gentle and hurt me for days. With same symptoms they discharged me with no advise o any care advise I am still in pain. Staying with old people in the room made me feel so depressed seeing how nurses don't take care of them. Older people in pain calling nurses and they not happy to help. Complaining and raising there voices at patients.
