During my stay, one particular auxiliary seemed to take every opportunity to humiliate me. Amongst some of her dialogue gems were, “oh he’s got MRSA and he’s incontinent” etc. Taking into account my condition and the mind bending effect of the drugs, compassion was never her forte. At one point, I had to ring my bell for two hours without any response. I phoned my wife at home, asking her to phone the hospital to discover why my bell was not being answered.
I woke up on the Sunday morning feeling very ill. I asked to see the doctor who started to examine me. As my doctor came on duty and came into my room to find out what was happening, on being informed he said no wonder you are ill because someone had turned off the oxygen, which should have been on for four hours which resulted in hypoxia. I believe that the staff nurse had turned it off before she went off duty the night before. I have only touched lightly on all the bad things, I found that it is futile to complain, if you are cheeky enough to do so, the ranks close and you get blanked. I have claimed I will never enter Southport Hospital under any circumstances.
