A man aged 59 was presented to Wagga Base Hospital complaining of headache, pain in neck, persistent nausea, vomiting, dizziness, inability to stand, and confusion.
After 5 hours was sent home. Hospital diagnosed "muscular spasms" gave script for panadenine forte. Two days later was sent to hospital by ambulance suffering same symptoms (although had worsened) sent home again. Next day family members took him again. Was assessed by a doctor in emergency who swore at patient, and seemed to accuse him of "f@$! ? ing around! ! ! ...diagnosed after overnight stay with metastatic cancer of liver lungs and brain. Died next day.....absolutely shocking!
