A bit of a rant guys so sorry in advance.
I'm sick of medical staff treating hubby like a second class citizen because of the reason for his livet disease. Yes Hubby is an alcoholic, he knows it bit instead of congratulating him on being sober for almost 18months they leave him for hours in pain because he is and I quote. 'An alcoholic'. What difference does that make?. You wouldn't say to someone with COPD who continues to smoke who the nurses even take our for a smoke oxygen cylinders an all (which is stupid as oxygen and a lite flame even Kids know that's not a good idea.) Sorry no pain killers for you as you are a smoker. All pain relief has been authorised by QE all he wanted was a second codeine.
This stay he has had his trousers pulled off him and a tray dumped on his incredibly swollen scrotum and caused it to bleed and him.scream in agony The nurse saying to her colleague 'look own bg his balls are).
He's also was meant to have a drain today has to be done under ultrasound. I chased it at lunchtime it wasn't even booked. He has had his bells ignor2d people have walked past him when he's struggled to the toilet in agony. One senior nurse even pulled out a chair right in f4ont of him and if he wasn't holding my arm he would have been knocked over.
Every single time he goes in for a drain they screw something up usually by not booking it with ultrasound or not ordering Albumin.
They don't take into accountthe fact this is drain number 42, that he is in hospital eve4y 3 weeks to have this done. That he has had SBP twice because they messed up, has been given the wrong drug countless times. My boy has been punished enough.
I just want someone to do there job right. No body should have to go through this a grown man in tears because he is I pain and they ignore him. Asking me to beg to take him home because he is actually scared reduced to this by horrible treatment. Our life is on hold and we just want a bit of compassion and efficient treatment. This is the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading by the way and I no.way represents Sidmouth ward (gastro ward) where if you can get a bed are fantastic lovely team who go above and beyond.
Sorry again for rant.
