My daughter was admitted to Broome Hospital with suspected appendix / kidney infection. The Triage experience was fantastic as the GP had called prior to our arrival and briefed the triage nurse of the circumstances as my daughter was in a lot of pain.
She was assessed promptly and bloods, urine and test ran straight away.
The doctor had asked for me to leave the cubicle as my daughter is an adult to ask a personal question that she may have not had answered had I have been present. I thought that was very considerate in respecting her privacy.
She was admitted and stayed on the ward for 4 nights, nursing staff were efficient and caring. 2 ultrasounds were carried out to check for any significant signs of abnormality in the pelvic and uterine region. She had received antibiotics through IV and was monitored and medicated well for pain relief.
She was placed into a shared room and although I had private health cover was not told by anyone I could use this and be put into her own room. I was told by the administration clerk on the last night and my daughter was moved into her own room.
Overall great care given by all!
