What I liked
What could be improved
Everything. I had to return to A&E due to a full l eg cast shifting and falling down my leg. The nurse removed the cast and told me to wash my leg. I could not move my leg, let along get down off the high bed to do so. My brother came in and assisted me. The very obnoxious nurse then came came and re-casted my leg. Sending me home, Several weeks later, back again for removal of the cast, I was sent upstairs to the Physio Therapy department, My crutches were taken from me and I was not given any assistance to walk on a leg that had been non weight bearing for several weeks. consequently I had no muscle mass to speak of. I had to drag myself along the halls holding on to side rails to get to the physio department. At least there, they gave me a split and a walking stick, which I still use to this day.
