Was called by a doctor from Fiona Stanley Emergency Department 6.30pm Friday about an x-ray from previous Sunday. There was a fracture in my jaw that they took 5 days to pick up on. I was asked by this doctor to present to the emergency department for a CT scan. This doctor told me that they would be expecting me and I would go straight through. I presented at emergency at 11am Saturday where I had to wait to be triaged again. I waited for 2 hours for this CT, which took only 5min. I was then told that the report would be in within 30min-1hr. It is currently 2. 30pm and I have been waiting for an hour and a half. When I asked how much longer, I was told to wait another 30min. During this time I have not been allowed to eat. I have now waited another 30min with no results and have left the hospital. In total, it took 4 hours for a 5min scan. I am incredibly disappointed in the service and care I received.
