I am sooooo annoyed, we took my 9 week old DD to the ER at Campbelltown Hospital - last night because her breathing was getting a little bit strained & she has bronchiolitis so we didn't want to take any risks.
Anyway - we were in the ER waiting room for 4.5 hours & when i asked them if we could sit somewhere away from the crowds to avoid her getting anything further (people spluttering with coughs) they said we could sit in a paediatric waiting room - well it was locked so when we asked if they could unlock it they said it was too difficult etc etc.
I of course let them know how annoyed we were & how worried we were about our baby & her breathing & coughing etc but they said there was nothing they could do because they were just so busy.
I am sooooooo annoyed, they preach the "watch out whooping cough is about" message but refuse to find somewhere seperate for me to sit with a newborn???? They could have seated us in the empty paediatrics room but didnt & looked at me like i was a b%$ch when i asked them to help us.
We got home at 3.30am this morning
I am worried she could have caught something else & when i asked the paediatric nurse she said "yes there is a good chance of that" (thanks alot lady now i am even more worried about DD).
Sorry, just wanted to have a rant as i am so annoyed right now & will NEVER go back there no matter what - in future i will go to any other hospital but never Campbelltown ever again.
