What I liked
I come here to my gynae and they are great
What could be improved
I came here in December 2009 for a medical abortion which should have been a very straight forward procedure.
I was called in to take a tablet, the nurse wa very uneasy and a bit shaky but I didn't question anything as she was the nurse and should have known best.
I took my tablets and went and sat in the waiting area to amke sure I didn't vomit, ten minutes later I was called in to say that my drugs had been given incorrectly. I'd been given pessary''s to take .
The usual dosage of the tablet I should have taken could then not be given to me so I only had half the dosage.
I was on my own and thsi was a difficult enough time as it was.
They sent me home sacred to daeth not knowing what was going to happen and without the full dosae of drugs to start the abortion.
Nothing had happened a couple of adys later so they brought me in to try and see if they could start the abortion with a pessary.
By the time I went home on the Sunday I still hadn't miscarried , it happened whilst I was at home 2 days later on Christmas eve!
Overall an unsettling experience.
I've been told now that I need an operation on my ovary and I'm terrified of coming back to this hospital for an operation.
My gynae is lovely, the only good thing about Rochdale infirmary
