"would not recommend"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

Was on digby ward for 10days nursing staff brilliant. Shame about doctors. Don't no what they are doing.don't read notes. My treatment was disgusting left me worse off in pain. Could not go toilet. One doctor said don't worry we will sort you out get pain under control get your bowels working properly. Next thing I was going home. To be told we will sort you out in outpatients! To date no appointment took me 2 more weeks to try and sort my bowels out myself. I have been screaming in pain unable to go g.p wanted me to go back no chance. Went tackycardi no e.c.g even when doctors said 3 times I would be having one. Went into apylatic shock the nurses had to get a doctor from the ambulatory to come to the ward as it was the early hours of the morning ! Sort this hospital out it used to be a good hospital.
