A stroke sur­vivor who is un­able to talk or walk was “dumped” in the hot sun with no shoes on out­side the Bund­aberg Hospi­tal, says her hus­band.

■ I have been in hospi­tal three times this year and al­ways found the staff car­ing and con­sid­er­ate and if I was wait­ing for some­body to pick me up, it was ei­ther in the dis­charge lounge or down­stairs near the kiosk near the main en­trance. There are two sides to ev­ery story I would like to hear both, as in view of my won­der­ful treat­ment I find this hard to be­lieve. — Lind­say Burl Ives

■ Have we heard both sides to the story as the hospi­tal has to put up with a lot of neg­a­tive press but can’t re­spond due to con­fi­den­tial­ity. — Ken Wil­son

■ I have just been through a shock­ing time and I have had the very best of care from the base hospi­tal. From the emer­gency depart­ment, sur­geon, nurses and the wound clinic that I visit daily, I could not have asked for bet­ter. — Tracey Gadis­chkie

■ I have never been treated bad only ever with kind­ness by all of the staff at the Bund­aberg base hospi­tal couldn’t ask for a bet­ter bunch of peo­ple. — Veron­ica Cupitt

■ Have been re­lease from hospi­tal Tues­day, had won­der­ful care from all staff went to de­par­ture lounge was given lunch and made com­fort­able. — Myra Wat­son Miller

■ I think pa­tient ad­vo­cates are needed in all hospi­tals in Queens­land. — Gary Hon­dow

■ So sad to read this. We have al­ways been treated beau­ti­fully at the hospi­tal. — Diane Porter

■ I have never been re­leased by the hospi­tal un­til some­one came to pick me up di­rectly from in­side the hospi­tal. More in­for­ma­tion needed. — Cat Madsen

■ Don’t be­lieve it’s the hospi­tal fault. — Co­ral Moss

■ It’s about hav­ing empty beds. — Sam John­ston

■ Ab­so­lutely ap­palling. — Jo An­der­son
