I presented to RPH suffering the nasty effects of a nocturnal seizure that caused my Complex Regional Pain Syndrome to flare up severely. Staff admitted me, but gave me no call buzzer to get help, didn't call my condition (which I am being treated for by RPH) by its correct name, gave me pain relief that they know does not work on me and failed to get someone from my Pain Management team to see me. No testing was done. I asked for a sleeping tablet at 12.30am and eventually received the sleeping tablet at 3am! I was discharged in a worse condition than I had been admitted.
