"Lack of Respect"
About: John Radcliffe Hospital John Radcliffe Hospital Oxford OX3 9DU
I was admitted following a four hour bout of gall bladder pain which left me in acute pain it was distressing for me and my husband and I, I was so doubled up I was bent over to try and reduce the pain. My scan months later proved I have numerous gall stones
I found the A&E staff brilliant until the following occurred:
1) The sister on duty was having a loud debate with the doctor outside of my cubicle about whether the doctor was permitted to carry out a heart test ( which was advised by the doctor but shot down because of budget costs by the nurse.
2) The following morning approx. 11am during the doctors round I heard the Consultant discussing my case, to at least 10 other doctors, in a very loud voice he communicated to them and anyone else who could hear what an odd woman I was! How rude
I had not punched anybody, been aggressive, or drunk!
It made me feel very vulnerable and distressed
I left the hospital soon after declaring never to go back to the JR
Patients should be treated with dignity and respect
