My partner went to the Angliss Hospital Emergency recently in excruciating pain due to their hernia playing up. 3 hrs later, they were seen to. They did a CT scan. The doctor then comes in and said they’re going to do emergency surgery, after a while they come back in and said that the surgeon is flat out tonight so they will leave it a few days. They then return again and said that because they're having the operation early next month, that they’ll just wait until then. So they just sent my partner home with a script for pain relief.
Now, this is the really, really bad bit. My partner has just received a call from their GP (late at night) saying to get back to the emergency because they have acute appendicitis! What the? The report the GP has I believe is the same as the report the hospital has... How were they sent home, let alone them not notice this? 🤬
So, hence now off to another hospital 😤
