"OMG" Loverly "NHS"

Hi.

Good evening, well I'm in again & don't you just love the NHS.

This is my 2nd visit over the past 2 wks

Well having only stayed 1.5hrs in A+E but I spent 6/7hrs hidden out of the way.

I was eventually admitted at 12.30 last night now hidden in an old part of the hospital once closed.

The moral of my story is I had no Dc/ Meds for my Pain for 24hrs.

Well I hit the roof "Big Time"

I think that I'm back on "Planet Earth"

I'm still in this Loverly place for another night "Great"

    The nurses keep coming around & asking how bad my Pain is from 1 - 10.

    I keep telling them that my pain is 10+ (Very Bad) they say they can't put the + on the PCs ??????

    Steve.

  • Sorry pressed the wrong button.

    I have already got my strong meds with me. They don't hav any stronger ones. Mind you I'm taking the maximum already.

    This has gone horribly wrong.

  • will be thinking of you

    I do hope they look after you well.

  • Hi Steve

    I wear a med alert that I keep upto date with all my med changes, have created a template in Word, that contains all the current information, I then cut out and fold to fit.

    Every time I go anywhere beyond our garden gate, I am wearing it. Has meds and dose rates, hospital number/consultants, GP and surgery contact details. The last time I was in hospital (8yrs ago), I made them check my records, and give me the right meds.

    If you are able to, insist they check your meds with your surgery, and insist they are given. A few discreted about person and wallet, atleast means you have some comfort.

    Good wishes, Hayesider

  • They are not the best places to be hope you feel better soon ☺

  • Hope you are feeling a bit better and good luck.

  • I work for the NHS we are very under staffed but we do our best. I very rarely get a break and sometimes have nothing to eat all day

  • Hi.

    I'm very sorry to include the staff on the "Wards"

    They are "Golden"

    1st class in my "Book"

    I'm constantly telling them that.

    Please Please except my apologies.

    I hope that I haven't upset you.

    Sorry

  • Hi Maisie 1 my husband is UCS (urgent care services) ambulance guy - the amount of times they have overruns is unbelievable - a lot of their time/ calls are to drug overdoses - drunks - people who have cut a finger - drug users and the overloads in A and E are due to a lot of these people clogging it - which makes it difficult for nursing staff and also folks like ourselves who are ILL - in fact I heard on the north west news the other day that a crew were called out to a seven year old who had difficulty breathing - they blue lighted and when they got there it was a DOG - hello - I think for these guys they should be charged for the cost of the Ambo just like the fire brigade do for stupid calls

    Sorry for the rant and hope Steve is feeling better and had his pain reduced.

  • I agree they should fine people

  • I agree Toolie charge these stupid people who waste NHS resources

  • No I know what you mean it's them and us. I believe we should all work 24/7 365 days a year. It's criminal that more people die at weekends than during the week. It need a good overhaul and new contracts

  • Hi Masie.

    Well said that is so so true.

    I have been waiting for my procedure since Tuesday.

    OMG the ward shuts this afternoon!!!!!!!!

    Steve.

  • I agree that the NHS isn't perfect far from it, but it is still better than most countries have. We have people on here who have run out of insurance they can't get treatment. A lot of the problem is that if someone out of the EU I goes to hospital they do t ask for the payment straight away so in some cases it is not paid

  • Hi Massie.

    Many thanks, yes you are 100% we do take it for granted. I had worked in it for 10yrs, this was the best time of my life. Unfortunatly I had to take early retirement. I was gutted at the time. Yes other countries don't have anything close to the NHS.

    Thanks.

    Steve.

  • I think people abuse it

  • Hi Massie.

    Yes they do all of the time.

    Sorry about earlier in the post.

    I'm sill in hospital awaiting my procedure.

    Things are great at the moment.

    Steve.

  • Take care I am sure the nursing staff will look after you.

  • Many thanks, yes they are all 1st class.

    Steve.

  • Hi Steve hope your feeling a bit better soon the worst thing about hospital is waiting for pain relief while waiting to be seen I've been in and out a lot recently I just take my own now because I know it will be hours before I see anyone hope your sorted out soon 😊

  • Hi.

    Thanks for your email.

    Yes it is my second house nowadays.

    Yes I had major stomarch surgery in 2014.
