"A private patient in a common room."

Posted by Private insurance patient being ripped off (as ),
My partner went to the ED department one night.
Was very impressed how fast he was accessed by the triage nurse and placed in a cubicle in the ED department.
But unfortunately the story went from amazing to poor once he was admitted to a ward.
Our private health insurance was charged as a private patient however we waited for an ultrasound, and my partner was placed in a 4 bed room which was stifling hot.
When I asked the nurse about getting a single room or a 2 bedroom room I was told no! Theses rooms are for patients with cancer or contagious illness.
Bet you don't feel guilt and charging the big $$ to my insurance company.
