"Waiting for bed."
About: Bradford Royal Infirmary Bradford Royal Infirmary Bradford BD9 6RJ
My husband had a follow up appointment after a case of septic arthritis surgery. Unfortunately on the morning of his appointment his legs had lost all feeling. On arrival at his appointment he was sent for a back xray which showed spinal problems. By this time he was vomiting, had a fever, was in immense pain from his back and had to wait 7 hours in the waiting room for a bed on Ward 27.
Following this, less than 24 hours he was transferred to LGI late at night as his spine was completely shattered.
The service was disgraceful as this problem could have led to complete paralysis.
