"Night-time emergency medical care"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

Nursing care during my two weeks' enforced stay at the hospital was wonderful. The night-time, medical care has felt haphazard and a case of "hunt the night- time doctor", especially during my admission through A&E at the end of June, when I was left without a proper assessment for 4 hours, the first two hours without any pain relief. My scores for cooperation of staff, involving patients in decisions, and being treated with dignity and respect are lower to reflect this.
