My brother was recently admitted to Emergency with fever & pain near his tailbone. He was examined physically and sent home later & was diagnosed with external haemorrhoid. After 5 days and following the doctor's recommendation, he was not feeling any better. He went to a General Practice and they found out it is not a haemorrhoid. The GP referred him to Ryde Hospital for immediate surgery.
Should this have been properly diagnosed in first place, my brother should not have suffered for 5 days due to the pain & fever.
Please ensure all doctors in Sydney Hospital have adequate skills & knowledge to ensure this misdiagnosis does not happen ever in future.
It will one day cost someone's life!
