Torn achilles tendon is a pretty painful thing right? In my opinion, at Rockingham hospital they think otherwise.
In my opinion, being ignored, lied to, misdiagnosed, and stared at constantly like as if to check if I'm lying about the injury and pain... very rude indeed!
No pain killers for 5&1/2 hrs, and when they did finally, it was only paracetamol!
Being pushed into a corner, facing the wall, next to a rubbish bin, in front of the other patients in ER was pretty humiliating/degrading, and just plain offensive. Something that the other patients commented on at the time.
I believe these so-called medical staff should not be allowed to work around people again - ever!
What a horrendous experience, I have had to consult with my GP, due to feeling like jumping in front of a moving bus. We are sorting it out, but I still feel very much neglected, and worthless.
The fracture clinic booked me in for two weeks time? Doctors and nurses all say should be 1 week...
I believe everything that could be done, has not been done!
I hope they're happy with themselves in the triage & ER departments. I think shame on you all!
