"Concerns about mental health support in hospital"
Posted by Angelbabes (as ),
My partner phoned 999 for me, because he thought I was in danger and he was worried about my high temperature. I became a patient at the hospital. I thought that the ambulance services were excellent and the staff were very kind and polite and quick.
However, if I am being totally honest here, I was not happy with the way the nurses and mental health nurse treated me in the hospital. They were constantly being rude towards me and they were threatening me and I was very frightened of them. I still am, because as far as I'm concerned I did not deserve that kind of treatment from any member of staff, especially because I have a mental illness. I felt that they were not helping by treating me that way.
My family arrived and found me in tears because I was very frightened of them and I just wanted to go home where I felt safe.
