"Leg fracture at Crosshouse Hospital"
Posted by Kero1400 (as ),
I arrived at Crosshouse Hospital 2 weeks ago by ambulance after an injury at school. There was no sign of a brake/fracture. The paramedic wheeled me in a wheelchair to the pediatric ward and I was forced to walk on it. They asked me to rate the pain on a scale from 1-10 1-being a minor and 10- being a major I rated it about 7-8. The nurse's facial expression showed that she didn't believe me. I was forced to walk again and was moaning in pain. I wasn't given anything to calm the pain. I was sent to x-ray to get a few x-rays. I was wheeled back round to pedriatrics and it was a 5-10 minute wait until we were told it was a fracture. The nurses facial expression dropped when she heard it was fractured. I was right all along, but it goes to show they don't believe you if there are no signs.
