"Emergency care at Bulli Hospital NSW"

About: Bulli Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

My right eyeball was scraped by grevillea in backyard - I am also allergic on skin contact to some grevilleas - tried to wash the eye out a few times as initially irritating but got worse overnight with eye inflamed etc so went to Bulli Emergency at 6.45am - got triaged (behind a patient with chest pains - which was fair enough)

doctor put local anaesthetic drops & dye in, checked it out and confirmed that there was nothing in eye - sent me home with antibiotic drops for eye

very happy with quick treatment especially as can take days to get appointment to see local gp's in my area in northern suburbs of Wollongong.

Keep the Bulli Emergency Department open.
