My mum was sent to emergency at Lyell McEwin Hospital for tests after seeing her gp with severe stomach pain.
After spending all day waiting around she was told to stop taking nurofen and sent home.
The next day she was sent to the Royal Adelaide hospital still with severe stomach pain, she was admitted but it seemed to me they did not do any tests for 2 days and I believe that by that time her condition was inoperable and she passed away that night.
2 months later Lyell McEwin called me and asked why my mum wasn't answering her phone and why she hadn't shown for an appointment they had booked for her. Words can't describe how disgusted I am with that hospital.
"Lyell McEwin hospital was insensitive after my mother's death."
