"Dissatisfied with some of the treatment"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

On arrival at Blackburn Hospital ,I was taken into the Trauma unit having not passed water for nearly two days only blood ,then take to a ward where I was dealt with by two male nurse They where brilliant one had to change the catheret because of blood clots then taken to another ward and told I would be in for two nights to assess me ,next morning about 10 o'clock the nurse asked me if I would like a wash ,which I never got until late afternoon , till I had a wash I was lying in blood soaked pants which I think is very bad then they told me I could go home and gave me pills to take ,the next day I get a phome call to go to the hospital and pick up so antibiotics as the result of the blood test showed I had a infection ,as I was in no fit state to drive my wife tried phoning the hospital back to get the perscription through our gp couldn't get through ,so our doctor got the medication ,which turn out to be wrong then a nurse phones from the hospital again wanting to know why I didn't come in after a lot of fuss I got the right medication I think they sent me home to soon they should of waited until the result of the blood test ,really a right mess up
