I injured my knee at school a few weeks ago. I couldn't move it at all.
When the ambulance came I was put in the ambulance and took to crosshouse hospital a&e. When I got there I was taken into a room there.
The first nurse who came in was nice to me and was talking to me and trying to take my mind off it, however when she left I was sitting myself for about half an hour. After that another nurse came in by this time my mum was in the room.
Her attitude was a disgrace tbh, she looked as though she didn't believe me that the pain was so bad she just kind of growled at me for most of the time.
After I had my x ray which was painful but the nurses were nice there, I was taken back to my room and was told by the nurse that I hadn't broken it but I had slightly tore the ligaments.
She told me that I had to get up but I just couldn't. She never offered/gave me any help at all. I tried and tried but I couldn't. I was screaming and was in tears with the pain. She just stared at me and brought in another nurse who was really nice. She helped me get up and I was up in 5 mins.
I was then given crutches and told to do exercises. I wasn't told what exercise to do I wasn't told what I could do to help it. I was just basically thrown out as if they couldn't wait to get rid of me.
I was shocked and disappointed by my visit and was disgusted by that particular nurse's attitude.
