My parent recently attended Narrogin Regional Hospital Emergency Department (ED) and was discharged late in the night to drive some 50km to their home.
Whilst they received care during their time in the ED department, I find it disappointing that they were discharged and not provided a bed for the night. In my opinion, their spouse should have been sent home earlier in the evening to save travel in the middle of the night.
My parent took some days to recover from their ordeal and subsequently attended their specialist in Perth for follow up due to a problem showing up on their scan taken that evening, which I believe was not highlighted on the evening.
My parent is now recovering slowly and is very upset over their treatment. In my opinion, it would have had a better result if they had been admitted for the night.
