"When I was admitted to milton ..."

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

When I was admitted to milton keyes general with severe stomach pain and constipation I was taken in and only had an xray and bloods taken, i did have laxative and pain relief. I didnt feel comfortable. Nurses on ward twenty were really nice but I found the doctors to be very rude and they dont give you a lot of time. I was diagnosed with having psycological symptoms of which I know it wernt because I was recently peg fed and had just started eating normal food which was causing me to have constipation. After a week or so being out of hospital my bowels returned to normal. I how ever did have a time where I thought I had recieved the most possible care I was admitted with my heart going a an abnormal rhthym I was taken in given drugs to help me and I was monitored and they spoke to me with decentcy and respect. I recommend ward 1 CDU.

What could be improved

More listening to what the patients symptoms are and respecting their feelings.
