A number of weeks ago I sustained a head and leg injury after being assaulted. I was taken to York Hospital for treatment after the incident.
I believed that the wound on my leg was going to need to be stitched, but after the nurse saw me, they decided to glue the wound and bandage it up. While they were doing this I was trying to explain to them what the injury to my head felt like - after being hit in the head around my temple, it felt like fluid or air was gathering on one side of my head. I felt that the nurse wouldn’t listen to what I had to say at all. I asked the nurse to do a scan because I was worried about the danger of fluid and air build up near your temple, but they refused. After bandaging my leg, the hospital just released me with no treatment for my head injury.
At this point my head still does not feel right on one side and I have been getting numbness on that side. My GP has referred me to a specialist in Perth to get it looked at as there may be a fracture.
Why wouldn’t the hospital give me the care I needed after such a dangerous injury?
