Nearly two weeks we were told our child (a tween) required an admission to PCH for cystic fibrosis treatment. Their Consultant decided it was urgent and filled out the paperwork immediately, ticking urgent admission on the paperwork.
Nearly two weeks later and we are still waiting. We are given what I feel are excuses that the hospital is full due to flu numbers yet the News tells us those numbers are the lowest ever? Staff tell us it’s a nurse shortage. The Government say they have released funds to allow for the employment of more nurses.
I say you all need to get your stuff together and sort this crap out! Cystic fibrosis is incurable and the only hope we have is treatment as soon as it’s needed! In my opinion, no kids with cancer are left waiting weeks for a bed! In my opinion, this is unjust and unfair! Keep an eye on 9News for me as they have picked up on the story. As if PCH hadn’t had enough bad publicity! In my opinion, you need to fix the damn staff and bed situation now!
