"Given wrong dosage of medicine at Northern Gen"

About: Northern General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

In June 2007 I was treated in the Cardiology section of the Northern General Hospital Sheffield, on the Huntsman1 and Chesterman3 wards.

I thought the doctors and nurses treated me very kindly in emergency and on the ward afterward.

However there was one nurse on Huntsman that was a problem. I was given a wrong dose od Prednisolone. I told the nurse I was meant to take 2.5mg but she made me take 25mg- 5 red instead of 1 brown, even though I told her she didn't check it. The next two days I didn't have any Prednisolone at all.
