I was rushed in on Monday 10 February to a n e at 10.30 pm was told they were busy even though they were busy gossiping. I was taken to a cubicle by a nurse had bloods and ecg done. Waited for Dr to come which he did and said i needed admitting to ward 28 due to my bloods been abnormal saying i had gallstones in my liver was given a drip and morphine and told i would be going the ward within an hour. Well was left with no1 checking on me so had to go find a nurse who said they were having problems getting a bed for me and i would maybe have to go to Grimsby but i said. no as i came from Goole anyway went back on my trolley eventually falling a sleep basically been ignored all night. Around 8.00am the following morning the matron in change came to see me and said how sorry she was that i had been here all night and she said i would have a bed within an hour because she will be getting told off because i had breeched the waiting time which was not my fault. I eventually got a bed on ward 28 at 11.00am on Tuesday 11 February was booked in by the nurse but did not see a Dr until 5.30 that evening and was told they had forgotten to notify the Dr that iwas on the ward. I am absolutely disgusted by the way i was treated and would like an apology and answers.
