"shocking care don't think they employ any doctors"

About: Leicester General Hospital

I have been in the hospital for 5 days it has taken this long to get 2 scans done. I have had 2 complete rata without seeing a doctor at any point in the day. The first night I was here I was left stranded at the hospital without being admitted and no way of getting home so theade up a bed for me then tries to kick me out of my bed on the middle of the night. After a passing out and having something that felt like a fit at the time I was never reviewed until 36 hours later when they had to get a cover doctor from another ward to see me as my medical team were uncontactably When trying to leave they tried to get someone to review a scan which had been done over 9 hour's previously they couldn't. I can't believe my tax pays for care like this. I have spoken.to other NHS staff and they say that some of the Care given.was dangerous including not covering and.cleaning canulas when changing fluids and not wearing gloves when administering fluids.. All.in all utterly shocked at the hospital.
