"Treated Appallingly"

Admitted via UHND for recuperation. Dr was ok but certain nurses and HCAs treated me terribly. I came here to help me get better, not to be shouted at and told I was useless. Finally discharged without vital medication and within 2 days was readmitted to hospital as an emergency.

Have heard from a previous patient that they were treated the same. Appears to be a certain ward and certain staff members
