"i was safer when discharged than in the hospital"

What an utterly dreadful time. The nurses do not care. They work in a 'tick box' fashion. I had poor pain relief, no interest in how I was, poor hygiene care, food and drink I could not reach, given inappropriate medication which required another ambulance within a day of being home, unnecessary bruising from needles, no information about what was happening, no discharge advice, inadequate nursing competence.I can only hope that noone experiences the same thing. This was quite a culture rather than the odd person so I rather fear that this happens to most patients admitted to this department. I felt unsafe and uncared for. A truly despicable place.
