After going to the GP with symptoms of a chest infection, and shortness of breath I was diagnosed with a heart rate of 173 b/min. Also on my mind was a blood clot in the lung given my previous history. I chose to go to Geelong Private Hospital as a direct admission which proved very convenient.
When I arrived at the hospital I was shown to the Coronary Care unit and put straight into a bed.
My nurse hooked me up to a heart monitor and the hospital doctor arrived promptly and examined me …… all very seamless. Staff spoke to me right throughout the process and I felt very informed and involved in my care.
My specialist started me on medication later that night which was administered very promptly and explained very well.
After three days in hospital and my heart rate considerably lower I have to say I was very pleased with my care from the nursing staff and the food was a credit to them.
