"Very appalled with how the hospital treated me"
About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary The Royal Victoria Infirmary Newcastle Upon Tyne NE1 4LP
My partner came in to A&E with a stab wound to his hand. He was referred to plastics hand trauma. The staff were very rude and I was not allowed to go and see him instead I was left in a waiting room for over 3 hours. When it was confirmed he needed an operation he was taken to the ward where the nurse rudely said I was not allowed to visit as I was a female. So instead I was left wondering about the hospital for 4 hours while he waited to go into surgery to have a 30 minute procedure. Very appalled with how I was treated as a patient should not be left on there own all day without any family with them. Very disgusted.
