"wouldn't treat my worst enemy like that!"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

I was in hospital with my partner a few months ago unfortunately, for a miscarriage. There was such a lack of communication in that place. I had one member of staff actually have a go at me, even though she had forgotten to take me for my scan. I was left for 14 hours without anything to eat or even a drink of water. Was told it was a total miscarriage then there is still a chance. Over and over again. Constantly having my heart broken then getting my hopes up! To say it was such a sensitive subject. The staff couldn't care less. I had staff tell me " nahhh i bet your pregnant again by Christmas" or "have you got any kids, yeh one. " ohh well you already have a healthy child" I could not believe the things that were coming out of there mouths! I can honestly say that I will never step foot in that hospital again!
