My 15 yr old daughter returned from A&E today after injuring her big toe. It's swollen, bruised and she's unable to weight bear. Her boyfriend says that the person who dealt with her was rude, sighed and shook their head prior to her x ray as if she was wasting their time. I don't know if they were a Dr/nurse as they were not wearing any ID. Despite the base of her right big toe being obviously swollen, the x ray was taken of the right side of her foot and not the left??
Since returning she says her toe keeps tingling and going cold and numb. Just a bruise apparently. Wish I could post the pictures I've taken!
Is this behaviour by staff to prevent patients coming back as that attitude has worked previously. I will be getting a copy of the x rays and will be interested to see if the side view actually shows her injured toe
