I was admitted to hospital for one week in July, I found that I was not listened to and staff forgot what I said as soon as they left my bed. I was offered six pain killers within one hour and I refused because I would have overdosed.
Different staff telling you different things was another problem and I didn't know who to believe. The ward was understaffed and nurses were complaining. I had meals missed as they couldn't be bothered to check who was admitted.
During the night the staff were laughing and talking loudly as well as banging doors and chairs screeching on the floor.
You go into hospital for rest and to try and get better but I was glad to be home and to feel safe.
