Posted by AMD (as ),
My daughter presented to Maroondah Hospital ED with acute, severe abdominal pain. She was assessed promptly, given pain relief and within an hour a provisional diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Within 3 hours she was on a ward and within 24 hours had surgery. Staff were professional and efficient (an expectation of hospital care); also kind and empathetic (underrated features of health care! ). My thanks to ED and 1N staff in all domains.
