I experienced the most traumatic time of my life staying at Preston hospital following a bone graft and manipulation under anesthetic for a frozen knee. Despite being immediately refereed to the acute pain management team, I was left for 6 days with in adequate and inconsistent pain relief before I received a visit from them.
I was placed on a CPM machine but in a manner that was inhumane, and contrary to the recommended instructions. I became very distressed yet my distress was either ignored or belittled by staff who were unemphatic and was actually verbally abused by one doctor. I will never set foot in that hospital ever again.
