I was admitted to nsech by ambulance. I was taken to a room straight away, where an ecg and bloods were done straight away.
Shortly afterwards I was moved to Orange zone, where myself and my husband spent the rest of the night. From 1: 30 am til 7: 30 am, we saw no one apart from a quick BP check and temperature check.
The problem I have is, why no water in the bays? We were both thirsty and it would be a nice touch.
Also, please pass on to staff, that for patients who are feeling unwell, listening to staff screaming and laughing about their social lives is not restful or professional. I realise that some noise is inevitable in a&e, but please pass on that it is easy to speak in hushed tones. I am sure it will make the patients feel like they can rest.
