I’m overall impressed with Fiona Stanley care particularly in the cancer centre. I‘ve been scheduled for chemotherapy once a week and radiation daily for 6 weeks. So far it has gone well…….until just recently.
My appointment for chemotherapy was at a particular time in the afternoon and nearly 2 hours later, I was sitting there with a cannula in my arm, still waiting for therapy! Why, because I had to have a blood test and wait for the results.
I don’t object to the blood test, what I object to is receiving conflicting information from nurses. Last week I was given a form and told to get a blood test at the hospital late in the week, which I did on a particular day - one that I checked with the nurse who confirmed that would be ok. 4 days later, I arrived to be told those blood tests are too old and new bloods need to be done!
(Grrr!). Please, I think you need to get your stories straight. I wasted my time last week getting the blood tests and wasted another two hours (not even sure at this stage if I’ll get my treatment). In my opinion, that is an abuse of a patient’s time.
