"They left a piece of glass in ..."

About: Newark Hospital

(as the patient),

Anything else?

They left a piece of glass in my thumb having stiched it up, I actully had to go bck down to Essex where I had moved from to get it removed. The nurse who saw me when I went back because of the pain needs to learn how to deal with people, she was rude and obnoxious at best. I would never go back to Newark hospital. My mother lives in the same village as me, and when she broke her wrist, I made her go to a hospital further away, just to avoid Newark. Poor treatment of injury, and disgusting attitude towards patients. I live in and own a pub, as soon as they heard my address they just assumed it was an alchohol related injury, despite the fact I was sober, and actually drove myself to the hospital. If I ever get another injury or illness that needs hospital atttention, I would rather suffer than revisit Newark
