"Accurate information in notes and Discharge Letter"
Posted by Kat19 (as ),
Discharge Letter says my mum went to GP after 2wk history of pain and GP sent her for X Ray and found a fractured Hip.
But in fact she had pain - Went to GP who diagnosed strained muscle
Went back after 2wks asked for XRay, XRay on Fri midday.
Following Monday GP called to say it was a fractured hip and needed surgery.
The XRay took too long to be done and resulted. This is the second time mum has had a fracture misdiagnosed.
Mum would never complain about the NHS but I feel the misdiagnosis should have been noted to prevent it happening again.
I am not looking forward to treatment when I am old
