"Knee Injury after a fall"

About: Warwick Hospital

I fell at Warwick Castle and was reccommended to go to the A&E at Warwick Hospital by the first aider. The receptionist was great and guided us in the right direction etc. but the nursing and radiology staff were disengaged from the task in hand with no human sympathy or interest in me, the patient. The Doctors sat around looking at computer screens and Not one of them ever came to see me! i was left in a cubicle for a long time not knowing what was happening and sent home with crutches and a splint and told to go to my local clinic after returning home. What a waste of 3 hours and no further forward with any care. Why are these people paid so much?!! Does no-one monitor what they do?
