My mother was in alot of pain with her stomach. My father took her to A&E and she was just given medication she even went the second day and still medication was given.
Her pain was even worse and I had to take her to A&E again! We waited for someone to see her and then was told to go to the Gynecology department. We went there and they told us to go back to A&E! Three times we were going up and down when eventually the Gynecological doctor came and said that my mother was bad and should have been treated earlier?She had to be taken to Queen Mary's as there were no beds which was possibly the best decision he had made!
I must say i was deeply appalled at the level of care and respect given! It's a doctors and nurses job to look after people and this is the care we get!
This hospital needs to re-train their staff and show them how to respect people! The same thing happened to my friends mother when she hurt her back and my younger went today and was spoken to very rudely just because he had a foot infection he was worried about.
My mother went earlier for these pains and the doctor told her to go home and call your GP if there is a problem!
If you don't like your job then tough! Don't be a nurse or a doctor!
