"Urgent treatment prescribed by ..."

About: Royal Sussex County Clinic

(as the patient),

What could be improved? Urgent treatment prescribed by Doctor was not implimentated by nursing staff for 3 days. Hence the patient had to endure vomiting and being unable to eat during this 3 day period for the lack of a 5 minute treatment which had been prescribed No dignity was given regarding toilet issues even during visiting hours. Incontinence pads waived in the air across the ward. "Does he need these". A complete lack of compassion for the feelings of the patient. Anything else? If you are elderly and have no one to speak up on your behalf to get you the treatment you need then try to avoid this hospital at all costs. It's dreadful
