"No treatment given"

About: Fiona Stanley Hospital

(as the patient),

I went to Fiona Stanley Hospital by ambulance due to me collapsing and having non-epileptic attacks. The ambulance took me to Triage and I waited and the nurse asked me if it was epileptic. I said no and they sent me through to the waiting room as beds were full.

So we waited 3 hours to be seen and when they did, they did my IV drip, blood test, and urine test. They all came back positive. Then we waited for the doctor and they did all their physical tests.

Then the doctor rang the Neurologist and then came back and told me there was nothing they can do and they sent me home without referrals to a Neurologist or any forms.
