"Go home they said, get some fresh air"
Posted by POJUL08 (as ),
My adult child came into Box Hill with excruciating headaches, couldn't stand up, was crying in pain. They were told they had pneumonia (although chest x-ray clear) normal bloods. Go home they said. Get some fresh air. My child couldn't stand up, they were reviewed by no senior person.
Good Work ED, my child actually had a terrible leak in their spinal fluids, they are still in Epworth Neurology ward after multiple procedures, where they should have gone first obviously, although Box Hill was the closest. If you don't know what the hell is wrong with someone in so much pain, call the specialist on call.
I am utterly furious.
