"Wheelchair user denied a&e treatment"
Posted by jambles1234
i am a wheelchair user who was denied a&e treatment, I was sent into hospital by an emergency ambulance as my kneecap was dislocated plus I hurt my hip and I was on the floor in the house the ambulance took me to queen Elizabeth hospital a&e. I had to wait 4 to 5 hours in a chair with no pain relief and then was called in to room where a doctor started to have a go at me saying that people were on life support machines as there was nothing wrong with me he did not look at it or examine and X-ray it. and I was wasting hospital, ambulance, and everyone else's time and if my knee was dislocated he would give up his job plus he kept asking how my parents got around and he said that he was reporting me to the hospital and West Midlands ambulance service for wasting time and for an ambulance not to come out and he was questioning me about where I got my wheelchair from and how I get about at home/when I go out which was totally irrelevant for what I went in with as I went in with a dislocated patella and hurt my hips which was not assessed by dr who discharged me and said don't go back to a&e to see my consultant I also asked to see a different doctor for a second opinion and he refused to get me a doctor or do x-ray saying I am not taking your orders. However when I got back home I called 111 who got one of there doctors to call me who then sent out an ambulance and while the paramedics was assessing it and putting it back in. I went from 6:30pm till 6am with my knee dislocated
