"visit to MH hospital"

About: Macquarie Hospital Ryde Hospital

(as the patient),

I had come home from work and I was feeling very unwell.

I got ambulance but was released after few hours and sent home.

I managed get 5 hours sleep but woke up feeling terrible.

Within 3 hours I deteriorated again and again got ambulance to local Hospital.

After waiting for hour a health team interviewed me and made assessment.

Within 20 mins locums transferred me to Parkdale Wing of Mental Acute about 10 minutes away.

I was re assessed there and with care of professionals I had new set drugs to

get me in better state in fortnight.

My opinions are poor state of this mental area including normal people mixing with patients in much worse state.

Finally I have been appointed a Case Manager at my local hospital to help me with.

I had been lucky to have government organisation to support me when

I felt alone and wondering where I was going after this event.

It is time these aged dilapidated hospitals are demolished and rebuilt to modern standards.
