"Ward 28 never again!"

About: Leicester General Hospital

I was admitted to this ward for surgery most staff were ok but one in particular was so rude. I didn't drink for over a day and was told if I didn't go to the toilet she would put a catheter in. When I said I couldn't has I hadn't drank because my table was moved and I couldn't reach. She almost called me a liar. She told me to get out of bed and go toilet. I couldn't move and was in pain, I didn't need to go. When shift was changing she whispered to another calling me like I was a pain. I work in care and think it was totally out of order.
