"Feeling let down by the Victoria in Kirkcaldy"
Posted by countney (as ),
I was going through my miscarriage last December and I was rushed into Victoria hospital because of the severe pain. I was treated OK to start with until I was transferred into the maternity ward.
When pressing the button for the nurses to come it took over 15 minutes for one to come and see me, this wasn't just once, it was a few times, and the next day when it was over a nurse came and spoke to me and I felt was very judgmental towards me. They said to me that I should just get on with my life now because I am young. I was angry. I wanted my baby and tried for it. I got no support whatsoever. Not even a goodbye when my partner came to pick me up and not even one of the nurses came to see me out.
I had pressed the button to tell them I was getting picked up and a staff members said someone would come and see me first, I waited and waited and no one came so I had to leave. It wasn't a nice experience at all, it would have been so much easier on me if they were supportive, and when it comes to me having a baby I won't be choosing the Vic.
