Please can I have some opinions:
I was recently subjected to an examination which was not what I was expecting - and when my legs were pushed apart - I said it hurt too much. The physiotherapist pushed harder. I went to put my hands down to protect myseld and she pushed harder again.
I can't undress on my own and was made to undress alone - and I hurt my back and neck in the process
I was told I had to put on shorts - and I was made to wear a stained size small pair of nylon shorts, that smelt of body fluid - and I am XL size
I was emotionally blackmailed and told I could not get a second opinion
I was threatened and humiliated and they talked about my personal life and made judgements on me.
Later we received inappropriate calls on our phone which were intimidating and threatening
Pals were investigating - but that got stopped because the manager of Pals acted dishonestly and broke the complaint process.
So here I am - scared, hurt, depressed - feeling I have been mentally, physically and emotionally abused
Am I wrong to feel this?
What can I do ?
Why do hospitals protect the staff from complaints and not the patient?
No one has rung me to check I am ok?
They worst thing is - they tried to force me to accept care from the perpetrator after I had complained ....
Has anyone else come across anything like this?
I am so upset with the Bristol Royal Infirmary - they have let me down.
I would love some advice
