hope everyone had a good xmas, and before i start i want to make it clear i am not having an attack or anything like that!!
after struggiling with me stupid lungs over xmas mum decided well i suppose i did as well that enough was enough and she took me to hosp (not my local as i am away from home, at my hols home in somerset), i have not been to this hosp before but my g'dad recently came out after reciving excellent treatment after needing BIPAP. anyway went in and they saw me quickly and soon made space for me in recus, and they were great in there bit slow with treatment but i want at my local and i couldnt quiet explain what i usually have so i wasnt to worried but they kinda got the drift. i was seen by itu doc who tried numerous times to get an ABG cant quiet rember if he was sucessful or not !! anyway i was moved to MAU where there were great i got a front row seat infront of the nurses station where they were lovely!!
To cut a long story short i was moved to a resp ward where i was told thta i would be kept a very close eye on and the sister was lovely... BUT the problem began... i was taken up put in a seat becasue the bed wasnt ready (all i wanted to do was sleep!!), anyway after the HCA made bed i got in where i was left. I wasnt introuduced to my nurse told where anything was what to do if i had a problem etc etc but past the point of carying i got on with it. after sitting for some time with nothing been said to me basically forgoitten i got the nurses attention to say i needed a neb as chest was very tight, she said oh ok, ill have look ... oh yoiur drugs chart isnt here have you tried you inhaler?? well ... i had but normally i thought if you were on nebs you wernt supposed to take you inhaler on top ??!! (maybe i am wrong there but !) so about 1/2 later a student nurse has come back and sets it up for me and says its there when your ready!! after that i didnt see the nurse again ... until she was dealing with sum one else who haD been pusing the buzzer for wll over 10mins, i asked yet again for pain killers for my knee, and she said ill find you chart and never saw her again. So i just couldnt be bothered at all and went back to sleep. My mum finally got to the hosp and i told her what had gone on and she spoke to the nurse who sai 'would you like me to come and spewak to her then?' bit late!!! my mum confronted her and the nurse said she was sorry that she had ben busy with other patients and that she had only been 2 mins in getting my neb .. HMM lies!!! so i said i wanted to go home and the doc came over and said she wasnt happy and so did the sister but still i dischagred mysefl ... not clever i no but i dont see why i should be forgotten and left to deal with it myself becasue she had other patients!! on my way out the sister said to me you know that if you get anyworse that iut/hdu want you there ... well if i was that ill why was i left with no drugs chart? not asked if i was ok? even given 2 mins of her time? i dont really get it? i am at hoe now i know i should probably be in hosp but i couldnt stay there and would rather be at home they didnt give me meds and dint care!!??
the only thing is was i being unreasonable ?? do i complain? i dont quiet know what to think or do i have never been made to feel so out of place and worthless !
sorry for the rant i just not sure what to do and i you uys are teh only people who will understand!!
