Please read to the end. I am a Med student from Germany. The Clinique Internationale de Marrakech is THE WORST HOSPITAL I‘ve ever been to. Let me explain why:During our vacation in Morocco, I noticed my throat getting sore, my lymph nodes in the neck swelling and my tonsils getting inflamed. I first tried to battle the infection using antibiotics, cortisone and ibuprofen/paracetamol I bought in the pharmacy in Marrakech (everything is prescription-free in Morocco). I am a med student from Europe so I kind of f knew what I was doing. Still, waiting for two days and noticing no significant improvement, I decided to go to the hospital to get a professional opinion. At the reception, we were greeted extremely impolitely. The receptionist seemed to be amused about my unease and he just told me to sit down and wait. He didn’t even ask if I required any immediate help or if I was feeling dizzy or needed water or anything.I also noticed that there was not a single disinfectant-dispenser in the whole waiting area. NOT A SINGLE ONE!!! Not even on the toilets! Finally, after waiting for half an hour, we were called into an old and kind of shabby looking room to talk to someone. I had already explained all the symptoms and my assumed diagnosis to the receptionist, but I had to explain the exact the same things to the nurse in this room again. Then, a doctor, a young, unfriendly woman, entered the room and without introducing herself or asking about my wellbeing she asked me to tell her all the symptoms again. She barely even looked at me and I had to tell her that she should take a look at my tonsils and palpitate my lymph nodes to be able to give me a diagnosis. Then she sat there googling for a few minutes, coming up with the diagnosis that I must have mumps. Mumps?! Even when I told her I had had all the required vaccines and that I had even confirmed my immunity using a blood test, she just shrugged me off. She then said I needed an intravenous dose of penicillin and some NaCl to rehydrate. She didn’t even ask me about any allergies! It is literally the first thing anyone working in healthcare learns that you have to ask a patient about their allergies. Luckily, I am not allergic to anything and I know what to look out for. At least, the syringes were all new (I asked the nurse to unwrap them in front of me and prepare the infusion in the same room. Please do the same if you ever need an infusion/injection in a lesser developed country. It’s about YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY). I was then moved to another room. Or I should rather say, I was told to carry the infusion and walk to the other room (they didn’t even ask me if I was feeling dizzy or anything). There, I was supposed to wait for a specialist. In the meantime, the infusions had taken some effect. I was feeling better and we had booked our flight back home leaving that same day. I really didn’t want to talk to anyone of those incapable doctors again, so when the “specialist” arrived I told him I didn’t need his opinion. He just stomped out of the room without saying good bye and the doctor who had treated me before tried to make me feel bad about my decision. She said he had come from the operating room just for me, but he was wearing street clothes and sunglasses (also earlier on the phone she had talked to him in French and had asked him whether he was in Marrakech). So was he really in the operating room? I doubt it. I then signed a paper stating I refused the treatment and then I payed the bill of 99€. At least I felt a bit better after the infusion. But overall, it is a horrible hospital. Take it from someone who aspires to be a professional soon:If you ever have to go here: Take extreme care! Look twice at the Medicine these so called professionals want to give you without asking if you are allergic. If you have a serious condition, book a flight home as soon as possible and let the professionals at home help you!Update: I just went to the doctor in Germany and he confirmed my theory that I have had a case of tonsillitis all along. No mumps!
