About: Cumberland Infirmary Cumberland Infirmary Carlisle CA2 7HY
After the treatment my son received in A&E recently with a back injury I would never set foot in this hospital again! He was admitted in excruciating pain unable to bend or walk without screaming in pain. A doctor quickly made her assessment by prodding his legs , he was then given "paracetamol" then about 20mins later was given diazepam and told to leave!! Whilst struggling along the corridors he passed nursing staff and doctors and not one of them offered any assistance whatsoever, his pregnant fiancée 23weeks had to struggle to hold him up! If this is care then God help us getting ill! Believe me though this is not a matter I will be brushing under the carpet!
