Recently, I went to a GP complaining of a pain that was increasing in severity radiating from my right side back towards the front centre. The doctor suggested it was muscular, take a couple of Panadol and come back Friday. The doctor did this without taking any vital observations like BP, temperature, etc.
Later that night the pain become unbearable so I headed for the local hospital. The nurse on duty took me into the casualty area and carried out all required observations, she then suggested we contact Perth via a video link and discuss her observations with the doctor on the Perth end video link. They indicated that I may have a possible kidney stone, the nursing staff at the Three Springs Hospital cared for me overnight and medicated me with drugs that relieved the pain on the doctor's advice until I was evacuated to Geraldton Regional Hospital. I would like to state that the care received at the Three Springs Hospital was in fact first class and I wish to thank all at the hospital for their professional approach to patient well being.
