Ivy I can’t believe you’re being treated like this – it really is unacceptable and frustrating as all hell! I know you are probably too tired to contact the news right now; but perhaps writing to them instead of calling could be an option, or at least writing to your local member/Mr Rudd – because this is unacceptable! Working for the government I know that something has to be put in writing of some sort (even an simple email) and as soon as it is in writing it WILL be taken seriously. It os gov’t protocol and has to be acknowledged.
Might be worth a go, especially if others here are willing to do the writing on your behalf!
That’s the way to get attention I think – and you’re going to get a lot more sympathy from the officials when you are proposing a solution and not just telling them what’s wrong with the system. They really need to be aware of this though. You’ve requested numerous times for assistance and a bed and this is just not right. As we’ve all said, most other hospitals would demand you either stayed over or had someone there to look after you.
I know in my outpatient surgery they seemed quite anxious to get me in and out as soon as possible, I can understand they have huge lists for surgeries in that department, at least I had someone to take care of me afterwards, I really can’t say a bad thing about the treatment I received at the royal Brisbane. It makes me mad that you’re not being treated with sensitivity and respect. I mean I know these dr’s don’t understand 1st hand what this illness is like, but they should be sensitive to your needs!!
Let us know how you go with your letters and if you get a decent response! I certainly hope you do! Heh heh – maybe they’ll pay for a fancy hotel room for you and a chauffeur to and from the hospital as a ‘hush’ payment!! Wouldn’t that be nice!
What date is your surgery scheduled for?
