I was flown via Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) to Fiona Stanley Hospital after spending several days in my local hospital with severe back pain. The first few days in the ward I was in was fantastic, until one evening I was told that I was going to be moved to a different ward, closer to professionals that I was dealing with at the time.
But no, I was moved to the elderly care ward!! No one told me this, and I was put into a room with an elderly patient, in an old ward with the constant noise of patients yelling and screaming. I feel the nurses could not care less that I was there, I lost all care that I was previously given from nurses, to having nurses maybe coming to see once during the day - seemingly not even caring about changing a dressing!
Then on my last night there, I was once again I was shifted to the room next door for no apparent reason! I am disgusted in the care from a few of the nurses in that ward!
Also, I feel there was no communication between each specialist. Told one day that I was having surgery, to be told by someone else that I wasn't. Then a specialist came to see me about surgery. I told him they cancelled it, and they had no idea why this happened. I spent over a week there, and was sent home for a four hour drive with no improvement and no surgery!!
To this day I am still in the process of getting the surgery that I should have received while there. Total failure on everyone who were involved in my care at Fiona Stanley Hospital.
