Complaint / review / scam report
Better off at public hospitals

Complaint / review text:
Been admitted for a week twin pregnancy with abdominal pain. Firstly was ut in a ward with a septic patient that was extremely cold and demanded that all windows closed, Tried to explain the nurse attending to me that I was having hot flashes and wouldn't survive the night, she ignored me and furthermore closed the door to the ward as well as the windows, resulting in me waking up the following day with a swollen face. I complained to the sister in charge the following day I also learnt that I was not even supposed to share a ward with that patient as she was septic let alone share a toilet with her, patient was moved to a gynae ward and that was it. Saturday still in hospital, I ring bell for help as I'm in pain, nurse comes 20 minutes later asks whats wrong, I tell her that my pains are severe, she says ok I'll call the other sister. 15 minutes later same nurse comes back and hands me 2 pain killers and says the sister told me to give you these. I respond by saying these don't work she then laughs and says she'll tell the nurse and walks away pills in hand and no water to drink them, my husband goes to ask for water he's told they'll bring it and 30 minutes later we still wait
