About: Lister Hospital

Treated on ward which made me feel I was taking up their bed rather then to be treated and diagnosed whilst in pain and struggling to breath. Had to argue my stay to be diagnosed rather then placed back in community whilst still sick. Some of the doctors are very caring whilst one encounter with a doctor who seemed keen to discharge me. Having argued my stay with a temperature I was diagnosed later that evening diagnosed with pneumonia and needed oxygen over night. I was then taken seriously and treated appropriately but still discharged quite quickly for community staff to take over my care. It wasn't a pleasant stay battling with medical staff to help me the stress was unnecessary and I was discharged at 10 pm with the wrong medical notes and medication.
