At a party I was tackled by a friend - bit of messing about that went horribly wrong. The next day I was in incredible pain and visited the GP who thought I had a spinal fracture.
I was sent immediately to Royal Perth Hospital for assessment. I was in extreme pain and this was my first real trauma experience.
The triage nurse was lovely and dealt with me straight away. I was taken through to the Emergency area and a lovely nurse Karina, and Dr Lara looked after me, took care of me and explained everything that was happening and made me feel calmer about what was happening. I was sent for scans that I never experienced before - with lovely staff explaining everything to me and why each test was necessary.
I was later moved to the spinal ward for a few nights under the care of Mr W and his team. The nurses, and doctors I saw I thought were all very lovely, professional and caring.
I have soft tissue damage but the outcome could have been a lot worse- I cannot thank the staff at Royal Perth Hospital enough for the wonderful care I was given. My thanks to everyone who helped me. This is a wonderful Hospital.
