I have been under the care of Eastern Health for almost a fortnight with daily visits to replace antibiotics and do a general medical checkup. This morning my family had to rush to Wonthaggi Hospital as my mother had been taken there by ambulance in critical condition. This is well out of the normal operating zone for Eastern Health. There was no way I was going to be home for my daily visit so my wife rang Eastern Health to see what could be done. They organised, along with the fantastic nurses and doctors at Wonthaggi Hospital, to have my antibiotics and checkup done as an inpatient. The nurses at Wonthaggi were unfamiliar with the IV setup I had so consulted with Eastern Health staff till they were confident they could unhook me from the unfamiliar equipment and plug me into their particular setup. I can't express how grateful I am to both the Eastern Health and Wonthaggi Hospital for assisting me during this most stressful of days. My Mum is a fighter and the prognosis was far better by the time I left exhausted for home 14 hours after I had arrived. My health problems continue to improve thanks to the daily visits from Eastern Health nurses and today I experienced a level of service I am blessed to have received.
