A Landore man has filed a claim against Morriston Hospital for their disgusting attitude to his life threatening runny nose.
44 year old Pete Bowen, now in remission, was left ‘traumatised’ after being told to ‘man up’ in triage before being laughed at by a student nurse.
Bowen said: “Its not like I rushed up there straight away, I gave it at least an hour before calling an ambulance after noticing the contents of my brain pouring out of my snout. There were no ambulances in the end so I had to bloody drive too.
“And I had shivers.”
Bowen continued: “From the moment I stumbled in there I was made to feel like some fraud. I was convinced one of the ones in green made a snide remark about me, but that may have been the hallucinations from all the Lemsip.
“Then my Crunchie got stuck in the vending machine and I just lost my head.”
Sister Theresa Connell said: “At first it was funny, but he’s the 10th wet wipe we’ve had this week with a minor illness, blocking treatment for people with serious illnesses.
“They’re just so pathetic. I asked what he expected me to do about his cold and he said he was going to complain about the lack of attention he was getting.”
Bowen continued: “I’m not dramatic, I’m a man’s man, but I really thought I was going to die on a trolley in a corridor.
“I did everything right. I checked into Morriston Hospital on Facebook with an ambiguous update which said ‘not again’. It’s all these immigrants taking up the beds, that’s the issue.
“I’m just feeling blessed that my cold had gone by the next morning.”
