"Different diagnosis from different doctors"

About: Mayo General Hospital / Emergency department

(as a relative),

After a workplace accident my brother attended A&E where they told him he had no fracture. While one doctor commented that in another country the wound would just be sewn up a different doctor referred him to the plastics section in Galway University Hospital. In Galway, they discovered 4 fractures 2 breaks and 2 smashed which resulted in surgery and a brace for a few months. Months later he still hasn't gained the use of his limb, and he requires further surgery and probably will never be back 100%. I think we should not allow that doctor to practice in this country we certainly do not need him here. I'm not sure who read the X-ray but they also sent a copy to the family doctor stating no fracture was seen, we were lucky to have been referred or what a mess we would be in now.
