My Uncle was admitted on the Sunday evening with chest pains and confusion, after being left alone in a cubicle and having a gown "thrown" at us for him to change into. He was still having chest pains and eventually they told me he had had a massive heart attack and would be moved to a ward. He was moved to Medical assessment unit (not a heart ward) and the following day whilst visiting i was told that he had had a mild heart attack but they were,nt worried about his heart just the chest infection he had. I wa told he would be on a short stay ward and only be in for 4/5 days and would be home by the friday!!! He was moved to ward 19, was never put on a heart ward, heart monitor or any medication at all? The following day he died from cardiac arrest! This loss has left a massive hole in our family,s life and Blackpool Victoria Hospital without a doubt, let my Uncle down!
