My partner went into surgery at Kalgoorlie hospital recently. No blood clot stockings were given and no blood thinners were injected or provided.
We returned to Kalgoorlie hospital a few days later because my partner's left leg was swollen and feeling a lot of pain. We had an ultrasound and blood test done. They found a clot in the leg.
They gave us a prescription and file of my partner's health background and told us to go to our family g. p. After going to the chemist, the file that we had was someone else's and the pill provided were wrong.
We went back to the hospital and they took the paperwork back and we had to go back to the chemist to give pill back. I feel some of the nurses were rude and very unprofessional. We felt like we were in butchery that just didn't care for us or any1.
I asked for an extra pillow in emergency department so my partner could elevate their leg, got told its not the staff member's problem and to find someone else. Tried to get into the d. ward to see my partner and I felt nurses/ doctors just ignored me at door and walked passed.
What are we supposed to do when we need treatment? .. We can't just pack up and go to Perth. We need help, please.
