Admitted on 04.06.15 having been accepted from RBS. Spent 4 hours waiting in A and E for someone to come and see me having been told all day to eat and drink nothing in case they could get a theatre slot that evening. At midnight I was on a ward and was allowed food, half a sandwich and some water before being starved again for the next day. At 0800 on 05.06.15 I was told withinn the hour. At 1000 am I was told by the anaesthetist 1300 hrs. At 5pm I was being told nothing and the staff on the ward were being told nothing. There is no communication between staff let alone patients. After two days of starving I was finally told at about 7pm that nothing would happen that day. The food I had ordered and had been in the fridge for me had been given to another patient. 06.06.15 taken down for proceedure at 0900 hrs. back up on ward by 1200. It is now 1950 hrs I have seen no one from plastics or any other Dr post op despite numerous calls from the staff on the ward. It is not the hospitals priority but it is mine that I am currently my 79 year old mothers carer since she had a replacement hip four weeks ago. I have explained this to all the staff and I have spoken to her several times where she is the most distressed I have heard her. I have explained to staff that I need and intend to leave this evening. All I keep being told is that there are only two people working in Plastics today. Inexcusable and should not be the case. just because it's a weekend. I would never recommend anyone to this hospital, there is a total lack of communication between the staff themselves and the patients are left with no information as to what is happening.
