"Lack of care at DRI Surgical Assessment Unit"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary / Rehabilitation

(as the patient),

After waiting 8 hours in a cramped area with a lady of 85 who had been waiting for a bed in a decrepid wheelchair for over 9 hours, I think that this is appalling. I had been crushed under a trailer with severe bruising and I had consequently been urinating blood.

The elderly lady hadn't eaten or even been offered a drink; she was by herself and was obviously shaken and scared. Even some of the nursing staff were eventually appalled when they learned of the situation.

It took 12 hours until I was eventually seen and had xrays and MRI scans.
