I was put in a bay with an elderly lady who proceeded to remove her clothes.
I had to keep getting out of my bed to cover her up as there were three teenage boys using their phones and pointing them at her.
When I said to the nurse about this i was moved to another area which I can only say was not designed to hold beds as there were no alarms in the room. It would have been better if they had moved the old lady to a safer area.
I waited inside the A&E for 4 to 5 hours and then was sent to the short stay ward to spend the night before I received any treatment.
