"Refused Treatment"

About: Goulburn Valley Health

(as the patient),

I recently went into the hospital in Victoria with extreme pains in the lower abdomen. They being a small town hospital gave me pain killers and sent me to Shepparton Hospital Victoria. I still had retained product from a miscarriage a few months earlier.  The hospital refused to give me a D & C (dilation and curettage) and just gave me pain killers. I knew it was retained product as I had 3 ultrasounds saying it was still there.
