My local hospital have been under review for their maternity services, are ranked second bottom from lowest in the country , have a high rate of mother and baby deaths and are currently facing a law suit from at least 12 families who have proven medical negligence! apparently this hospital has undergone vast changes recently and they have been splashed all over the national news - I am a high risk pregnancy and this is the only hospital around that takes high risk. Whenever i am there i just dont see the level of care that i feel i should get. Communication is non existant, i was sent home twice with a kidney infection and no treatment, a midwife blatently lied on my notes saying that i confirmed no symptoms of infection when i did exactly the opposite. Midwives who sit on their phones with feet up on desk, its just appauling! One doctor admitted me for an MRI, the next day another discharged me because i didnt need one? then som one came to colect me from the ward and i had teh brain scan, when i got back the senior nurse asked where i had been and why - they dont know their arse from their elbow!!! finally my grandad was admitted (he has no speech due to a past stroke) and today my mum checked his notes to find the were for a different patient! he could have undergone different treatment and not have been able to identify the problem or even himself. im 33 weeks and thinking would it be daft to change hospitals and consultants with hardly any time left, this hospital is 10 miutes away the next is 40. They wont know my case... im literally in turmoil about it! i feel like the life of my baby and me is in the hands of complete numptys!
