Very disappointing night. Came in via Ambulance my 89yr mother suffering very high BP and just had a anurisim treated earlier in morning. Was left for hours in emergency waiting room with no mention of overcrowding and no bed available until I went and asked how much longer we needed to wait. Surely the Ambulance service should have been notified of the Hospitals busy status and diverted to other ones not under so much pressure.. I have the utmost respect for all medical staff and understand the extreme pressure they can be under. Surely someone dropped the ball by not stopping Ambulances dropping off patients who could not be seen or treated due to over crowding. We left after being told in a unsympathetic manner there was no room at the Inn..
I feel for all other patients in same situation as us with no explanation or alternative measures in place. Come on we are human beings not cattle. Myread more
Wanted some fresh air so went out into the garden section on G51 level and the place is TOTALLY littered with cigarette butts even though its a smoke free zone.
To top it off there was a prison guard outside smoking away next to her fellow guard who was handcuffed to a prisoner.
So much for abiding by the law
Thank you to the doctors and nurses at Charlies. I was there twice in the the last month. The staff were so helpful and could not do enough for me. I was in some pain before my operation. A special thank you to the ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists, Homelink and Dr Mc Cauliff. Ernie Hansen
I went in for spinal fusion surgery two weeks ago with dr Bala on the public health system. Felt a bit rushed with the pre op nurses but I know they were flat out busy. Dr Bala was great, came to see me before and talk me through everything, assured me I was making the right decision.
When they wheeled me in to theatre I was so nervous and scared that I started crying, the anaesthetist was awesome and said 'I'm going to give you some gin and tonic through this IV and you'll feel much better.' And he kept talking about really nice things until I went under.
When I woke up, I was well looked after by a good team of nurses as I didn't recover quickly, my breathing was shallow and my heart rate wasn't right.
Once I was in the ward I was in so much pain (I was told its one of the more painful surgeries), but they made sure I was comfortable, looked after myread more
