"Stroke management at the Epworth Hospital Richmond"

About: Epworth Richmond

(as a relative),

I am deeply concerned about the standard of care. A family member was admitted with a stroke. The medication she was prescribed (and also medication not prescribed) as a result of this I do not believe was in line with the Australian stroke guidelines. I felt that no reasonable explanation for this was given when this was challenged. I do not think the doctor had taken an adequate history of her previous medical conditions, which I think was relevant to the medications prescribed. Even more concerning to me was that the doctor told me that a test result was "normal" when it I do not believe it was. Also the doctor told me that another test had been done and was normal, when it I don’t think it had been done at all, and was only booked (for 3 days later).
