"My emergency transfer from one hospital to another"
Posted by Quackduck63 (as ),
After having a major operation of my left knee, I was transferred via ambulance with a doctor as I was post-op and still under effects of the anaesthetics. I was transferred because of breathing problems. I was on very strong pain killers through a PCA (Patient Controlled Analgesia) and a Ketamine infusion and was not in any position to make any choices for my treatment. After the handover from Fremantle to Fiona Stanley ED, all my pain medication was stopped, leaving me screaming in pain for sometime before I was treated properly.
How do I feel after this treatment at the hands of Fiona Stanley Hospital Emergency Department? I feel traumatised by the event.
