Went to A&E after a fall from a ladder. Had to wait 4 days because the ER at Grantham was closed because of a fire ( the fire was in a generator in a different part of the hospital but they still closed the ER? ?
Anyway once in the ER it took almost 2. 5 hours to see a DR. I was given X-rays and after looking at them the Dr said there were no fractures and just ligament damaged. Had my fingers taped together by a nurse and sent on my way with an appointment 10 days later at the soft tissue clinic. Total time in the ER 5 hours! !
Later that evening I received a voicemail stating that after further review of my X Ray I could have a fracture! ! They had made me an appointment 5 DAYS later at the fracture clinic for assessment!
Now I'm no Dr, but if I was, I would hope I could spot a fractured bone on an X-ray! !
Meanwhile, I sit waiting for an appointment for a real diagnosis and hopefully proper treatment of the problem.
To say I am dismayed by the service is an understatement.
I don't think this can be called top class health care! !
A T.V in the waiting room would be an improvement.
