"ghastly place"

Anything else? my poor wife was admitted with several infections including uti. after an eleven hour wait in a and e. she has been shunted round three wards like an unwanted package. It is impossible to get any information about her condition or what treatment is being given. THe nurses just say 'you must see the Dr' But no Dr is ever available. After waing nine days for one I was finally given an appointment at 11,00 this morning. Sat waiting almost an hour and a half< no Dr showed up.
