About: Poole General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

night nurcing team on ansty. they are amazing

What could be improved

the food and junior doctors

Anything else?

was admitted on 999 with chestpains, was told "Your over 40, Have Diabetes, You smoke,You have high cholesterol YOU HAVE HAD A HEART ATTACK!" This was despite 3 negative eeg readings. family were informed and frightened to death.4 hours later a NURCE informed me nothing wrong with my heart! Was only when got to ward was I allowed to inform my family all was well!

Food was nothing short of shocking (was left to last to eat which is never good if diabetic). Ward literally stunk from a customer with clear gastric problems. Stress Test was ordered for 2:30pm by doctor, nurce over-rulled doctor thus putting me in danger of hypo! Nurce wanted to know who doctor was to set test times (She was only the cardiologist). Was even asked if I really was a diabetic (Despite their seeing me administer insulin) Where do these idiots come from?
