I was admitted to A&E because of a broken wrist, I was seen to promptly which I was fairly satisfied with. The next day I was admitted to the trauma ward to have pins placed into my arm in order for them to repair. Over the next five days I fasted everyone of these days for hope of having surgery each day. But due to staff disorganization and problems with the NHS system many things including myself not being on the list for surgery, I failed to proceed with the operation. Turns out I was not meant to be in the ward I was which wasted five days of my time and using up space that could have been used for more important purposes. Eventually I was moved to the correct ward and finally seen to but I was in hospital for much longer than I needed to be. I feel like the hospital should look into utilization themselves a lot better in order to become more efficient.
