My husband and I went to the Dargaville Medical Centre to be seen 2-3 Weeks ago. His leg was swollen. We were put into a cubicle to wait and then into a room, waited to be seen for over an hour maybe more.
My husband has Kidney Problem (Protein leaking), COPD, On Warferan for Blood-clot he had while at work. Thrombrial Vena-Cava Vein.
He really needed to tended to with the Swollen Leg. My Husband could not wait and wanted to go home cause of his breathing problems.
But Friday Last week bought him back, because his legs were so swollen he could not walk on them. He is in Dargaville Hospital Ward, and the doctors and nurses have been really good tending to them. But they think he has Heart Failure because of all the Symptoms. I said to the Doctors, if he was tended to while in the Medical Centre, he would not have been in the Hospital now. Why I have put the Complaint in. Thanks to Dr Jim Smoliensky who tended to my husband he is being cared for in Hospital. But it still does worry me if my husband is going to survive with the swollen Legs all the signs of Heart Failure. But I know the Hospital Staff at Dargaville are doing their best with little resources, they have. I do hope the Services get Better, I have lost quite a few Family Members here. And I dont want this sort of care, and someone dies.
PS: And I dont want to be treated like no-one, for complaining. Just want resolutions.
