An angry mom has spoken out and blasted a hospital after her young daughter was denied treatment for a serious concussion.
Deborah Reeves from Queensland, Australia, had a shock of her life when her 3-year-old daughter Wynta fell off a bar stool at her home and bumped her head against the floor.
The concerned mother immediately called the ambulance which rushed the girl to Gladstone Hospital after she began vomiting and wasn’t unable to recognize her mom.
Much to the family’s shock, however, the 3-year-old didn’t receive any treatment for her injuries and was kicked out after she was diagnosed with Covid.
As Reeves claims, the doctors were preoccupied with having her daughter tested – first via a rapid antigen test that came back as negative and later with a PCR test that came back as positive – rather than treating her for her concussion.
After the test came back positive, the child was allegedly dismissed without receiving any treatment for her head injury.
“I’m so upset, I really feel that her head injury should have trumped a Covid test. She fell off a chair and got Covid. At no point did anyone look at my daughter’s head injury,” Reeves said.
“I am disgusted with the medical system. My daughter could have died and all they cared about was their positive Covid test.”
Further adding insult to the injury, the staff at Gladstone Hospital allegedly refused to immediately share Wynta’s test results with her mother. As the furious mom claimed, she was only informed that the test came back as positive on the discharge letter rather than being presented with the actual results.
“We weren’t concerned about any other symptoms or Covid symptoms… it was just the fall, and when they left us by ourselves and said that we could come home, I stood there for 10 minutes and just thought, ‘What do I do now?’” Reeves added as she appeared on the Today show.
“And then there was nobody around. I didn’t see another nurse or another doctor. There was just nobody to be seen, and so I got our things and went home.”
She continued: “They weren’t interested in the head injury. I think we need to go back to treating the issues that need to be treated, not just panicking about Covid first and foremost.”
