Unfortunately I was admitted to Derriford hospital for four days over a weekend . I supplied a list of my meditation and the amount and times I have to have them . I was occasionally given a tablet but never the correct doses . Some tablets I wasn't given any at all . One of the one's I wasn't given have terrible withdrawal symptoms as I kept explaining to the nurses (Paroxetine) . One nurse just shrugged and walked away as I was explaining it to them. I had the withdrawal symptoms and was ignored and told the ward didn't have any of my tablets . It wasn't until the day of my discharge that I was told that I should have brought my own with me I explained that I didn't think that was allowed and was informed that was in the old days ! Also I was admitted from an outpatient appointment so I couldn't have known that I would need them .
On one occasion I had to clean a lavatory before I could use it.
On the Monday the regular staff were back and things were a lot better but the weekend treatment I received was awful.
