I'm almost ashamed to say I've been to the mercy hospital on many occasions just to wait 3-4 hours for someone to look at me,
I have gall stones.. The attacks are nearly the same as a heart attack, and just as painful.
I'm only 19, and it's the scariest thing I have ever gone through.. The staff asked me on a scale using faces how I felt being how severe my case was I picked the one on the end which is severe,
I got in the hospital at 5:32 and was seen at 7:47, this was shameful, by now the attack had subsided and they took some blood samples an told me to see my gp who could do nothing to help me,
I have been to the mercy hospital nearly once every months for 9 months now... Id go in and tell them of my condition go through all the steps every time ( even though they are on file) I wait in the emergency room crying and vomiting,
No one comes to ask if I'm ok, no one offers me a tissue or asks to pho e a relative for me never once. The staff at the mercy are careless.. The only reason I would go back is because footscray is to far to drive invade I faint again
Overall I would recommend ANY other hospital...
