Was unfortunate enough to decide to go to Werribee hospital last night. Never again. Worst staff ever. They are jaded and rude.
I was experiencing severe pain last night which led me to go to the hospital for the first time ever. I had explained to the staff that my symptoms were not consistent with gastro and that I had this same pain four days before.
Staff proceeded to offer me neurofen which I refused to take as I had already taken panadol and I did not want to risk making the issue worse by medicating without knowing. When I tried to explain this they treated me like i was a hypochondriac. Told me to stop making up things basically. I was told that beds needed to be available for the doc to see me. Two patients walked out and I still needed to wait another hour.
Two hours of sleep for the whole night and a 3hr wait to see a doctor at 5am, who then told me to see my GP. My pain had subsided by then, and that must made me seem like I just wanted to waste their time.
This hospital is unbelievably terrible. I walked out crying. That was the first and last I'd even consider going there.
