"Poor, ignored. No follow up to my self..."

About: Torbay Hospital

What I liked

not a lot

What could be improved

communication and care.

Anything else?

i was admitted from my g.p surgery suffering from breathing problems after a chest infection as i do have emphesima and c.o.p.d it was advised to be admitted .

After a 4hr wait i did have a chest x-ray and then sent to a ward where i was told i had not been admitted but as my 4hrs of waiting in A & E had now expired i was to wait to see a dr when avalible --up to a further 4 hrs before being moved on again !

As i had only been discharged from exeter hospital a week earlier having had surgery to my spine i was in a great deal of pain and with no-end in sight i discharged myself and went home at 11-30 pm .D and CInfectionsSpinal surgerySurgeryCommunicationWardX-rayX-rayDoctorsPatient care
