Hospitals in the A.C.T. are refusing to give information over the phone to loved ones about relatives who are admitted, why, in case Radio Jocks are doing a 'Royal',yes its true I have been told it is hospital policy.
A.C.T. Hospitals have gone banana's, after the episode in England with the Royal's they have made a policy of not giving out information about anyone over the phone.
So if your husband, son or daughter is in an accident and you are told they have been taken to hospital you now have to go to the hospital. I assume that you have to have to show appropriate identification also.
Should you make a phone call and offer verbal identification, or personal details about who you are, you will be told that this is not adequate and no matter what you tell them you will not be believed, why because you could be anybody.
Yes this is true, I'm not making it up, should you be elderly, a relative or someone who does not have transport you will be left in the dark about your loved one.
Why are they doing this, because a couple of DJ's rang a hospital in England, what a load of rubbish.
SO NOW PEOPLE IN CANBERRA ARE BEING DENIED INFORMATION BECAUSE OF A STUPID PRANK BY DJ's
