About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

Actually caught several of the nurses having a gossip and mocking me and my case with other patients when I was on the ward. When I was first admitted to A&E after a seizure (causing three unstable fractures to my spine) I didn't feel right so I called out to the nurses many times, as did the patients near me, because the guard rails hadn't been put up on the bed - I was ignored. Next thing I new I was on the floor with a broken collar bone with 3 nurses telling me I'd had another seizure. I regret not suing.
