Here I sit with a broken hand, that should never have happened. And wouldn’t have, had my former doctor/counsellor taken my low blood pressure issues seriously – months ago.
But, she refuses to take responsibility for that. And shame on her.
Today, I had to go back to the hospital, to see if I need an operation. The very young, not fully qualified doctor, cut off the plaster, claiming I needed a new one.
To cut a very long story short, this was the wrong decision, led to more pain and the orthopaedic plaster technician, who put the plaster on a week ago, making a complaint about the doctor.
The orthopaedic plaster technician was furious and the conversations happening between them all made it very clear there were repeated mistakes being made by under-trained doctors.
Putting on the new plaster cast really hurt. And that was avoidable, because it should have stayed on.
Did that doctor apologise…….. nope. He was annoyed, but I had no apology. Arsehole.
Thank goodness for the technician, who remembered me being kept waiting for 9 hours in the ER last week. And instead of ignoring the doctors mistake, he spoke up. Which I am really grateful for.
As for the doctor……. what a coward.
It’s certainly not my week for doctors doing the right thing……. or for apologising when they fuck up.
Oh and my one finger will never have the same movement as before.
And this was avoidable, had another doctor not fucked up, by failing in their duty of care for what are very obviously concerning health issues = low blood pressure with ongoing dizziness, blacking out and arm seizures.
Doctors get paid a lot of money – and two fucking up, putting me in a lot of pain, and being cowards and not owing their fuck ups, is not okay.
It just goes to show……. a high IQ and capacity to be a doctor…… does not equate to having decency as a human being, or having the capacity to apologise when wrong…… or even being good at their job.
