I was left in waiting room waiting to be discharged for nearly 5 hours. When first sat down was told I had to wait for my medication, it was 11-45 and my last painkillers were at 8-30. After 2 hrs waiting I asked nurse in charge for painkillers. At 16-00 I was still waiting patiently but in pain, so I asked again for painkillers and what exactly I was waiting for. This was met by several confused looking nurses. I was given some painkillers, so I went to waiting room for some water to take them. I returned to the confused nurses and they had found my meds that had been sat waiting for me for some time.
Nobody for nearly 5 hours asked me if I was ok or if I needed anything. I did look directly at the nurses and made it obvious I was waiting to go for hours and got no response at all.
