"Emergency and accident"

About: North Manchester General Hospital / Accident and emergency

I had and accident 13th of September 4pm, I hurt my back really bad and could not walk..

it took to ambulance over hour to get me from place where I was and its only 5 min from hospital.. They took care of me in ambulance and by half 6 I was in hospital.. There I was waiting till 10 o'clock without water or food even if the person who was with me was asking several times.. Nurse always said they will bring it but didn't till 10pm.. After they did X-ray nothing was broken, so they gave me strong pain killers and said I can go home.. I was vomiting and wasn't feeling well and could not walk so they gave me cruthes and told me to walk it out, but I could not walk so they gave us wheelchair and my friend had to take me to taxi on wheelchair no staff helped.. They haven't check if there is possibility of inner bleeding or anything like that.. Till now I'm not feeling well and I'm so disappointed because I was giving a birth in same hospital and I was very pleased with service.. But this was shocking experience.:
