I'm currently very angry with my university and unsure what to do. I'd appreciate any advice or experiences others are able to share.
Before Christmas I had a severe attack at uni. I posted here about the poor first-aid treatment I received where I was left for 30 minutes and told all attacks got better in that time and didn't get any help until another member of staff over-rode the first-aider and called an ambulance. I didn't sound as bad by the time the ambulance came as they said I had a silent chest; the paramedics were angry I'd been left so long, and I was taken straight into resus in A&E.
My respiratory nurse wrote to my uni explaining how I should be treated in future and I raised a concern with health & safety to ensure neither myself or other asthmatics faced a similar experience.
I've had a letter from my uni today stating that the way I was treated was appropriate and it is the way they will continue to treat me and other asthmatics who have attacks at uni. They have ignored the advice from my respiratory nurse (which is the same as the Asthma UK advice card). I'm feeling quite scared, because if I were to have another attack in uni, they won't follow recommended advice and this could put me in danger.
I'm not sure what to do now - obviously it's not good not feeling safe at uni, but I'm too scared of the first-aider and his department to try and raise this with them and I don't want to be a burden on my respiratory nurse who has already done so much to help me.
