"The best thing about the hospital ..."

About: Penrith Hospital

What I liked

The best thing about the hospital is the exit.

What could be improved

I went to the hospital with a broken ankle, I had to ask the rude receptionist could I sit down somewhere while she took my details. A nurse called my name and told me to follow her while she practically ran to the examination room as I hopped after her. They diagnosed a sprain because I wasn't in enough pain for my ankle to be broken. They didn't spot that my ankle was fractured after x-ray I insisted on.

Subsequently I've had an operation to remove a pieve of broken bone from my ankle. Avoid the place if you possibly can.
