I have been reading all the posts on this website since I came out of hospital in May following my SAH. I am one of the very lucky ones and have recovered well and am looking forward to going back to work next week. I have been moved and inspired by how people manage following their injuries and have been touched by the support given by members of this site.
My question is - I was not diagnosed following my "mother of all headaches" by the first hospital and became more and more unwell the following week and another hospital did the CT scan and I was then transferred to the specialist neuro hospital where I had my coils fitted, lumbar drain etc etc. I have written to the first hospital regarding my treatment but I feel that I did not receive a satisfactory explanation. My reason for raising the complaint was to raise awareness of SAH and to stop this happening to anyone else.
Do members have any thoughts or experience of raising complaints with hospitals and if all the added worry and stress is worth it?
Many thanks to you all
