Well, where do I start? Back in March, I had a rather scary experience and wound up in resus and almost in ITU because of my asthma. The worst part was that the paramedic who came to me was so complacent and she didn't do anything at all to try and help me. Luckily the doctors at a+e were quick on the uptake and after an ABG that showed my Po2 had dropped to almost half what it should have been (got the immortal ""your sats were fine"" but they weren't actually checking properly before I got to hospital) and I was generally not a well person. The doctor was angry because it could have been avoided had the paramedic done her job. I had complained and just got my result letter.
They completely ignored the information from the hospital (including an EDS and a+e paperwork) and said that the paramedic didn't act out of line. I feel completely shaken. Surely they should have known right away? I mean, I must have really been bad that my blood chemistry was being affected. I guess I just wanted some answers and an apology. I think the thing that really bothered me was they tried to make out that it was the staff in a+e's fault, despite them being the ones who saved my life.
