After being transferred to Wonthaggi Hospital for a stroke, eventually, I was taken to the High Dependency Unit overnight including the following night too. The noise in this unit is very loud. Doctors walk in talking loud and the door slams shut, with a bang. The same on the way out. I asked if I could be transferred to a bed elsewhere, the Nursing Unit Manager (NUM) said, we have no beds but I can send you back to sleep in the Emergency Department. Seriously! It sounded like I was being offered a punishment fo speaking up. I contemplated checking out and going home but with the stroke and all that, they offered to drug me out.
May I make a suggestion please, fix the High Dependency Unit (HDU) entry door, and tell all staff and doctors to respect patients trying to sleep please.
P.s the ED staff are fantastic.
