"i treated as an inpaient after ..."

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

(as the patient),

What I liked

i treated as an inpaient after breaking my leg and dislocating my ankle i had to stay in for 5 day while i had an operation to pin my ankle.as soon as i arrived in hospital i was taken through to my own private room becuse i was in so much pain while they reposition my ankle. after i went up to the ward where me and my family where welcomed by the staff and my parents were offered a meal and refreshments. and i had a hospital band put on and all the nessercery questions were asked

What could be improved

i needed an operation and got told i would have it the friday afternoon (24 hour after i had my accident) but when the time came they told i had to wait until 17:00 but when that time came i had to wait until 20:00. that was 31 hours after i had last had any thing to eat or drink. i finally had somthing to eat at 7:30 the following day
