About: Musgrove Park Hospital Musgrove Park Hospital Taunton TA1 5DA
As the previous reviewer - I was sent to Musgrove by my GP and kept overnight in dreadful pain. The next day after a two minute discussion from the staff to the consultant and a two minute examination. I was told that they didn't now what was wrong and it was just something that happened sometimes. No taking my abnormal urine results into consideration. Hence discharged. I couldn't walk due to awful pain but I was expected to get myself across the whole hospital to reception to phone a taxi myself. After speaking to a sympathetic nurse she arranged a porter and wheelchair to get me to where I needed to go however I was dropped off in the incorrect place. Thanks to another kind member of staff I eventually got where I needed to go. I'm now home no better and feeling exactly the same - in dreadful pain and no fluids or food for four days. Whatever happens I will NOT be going to Musgrove again as the experience was awful. To be fair the nursing staff were very kind during my short stay until I was discharged. Why no scans ect - saving money?
