My child sustained a serious C6 injury and we were flown by RFDS from Kununurra District Hospital. We were admitted to Ward 5 and we were met with excellent care from the medical staff. It was a very traumatic experience for me and my child, but the staff were very professional and caring. They were always friendly and my child grew very fond of them all. My child was a patient for this admission 5 days but the next admission was 6 days. The nurses have a tough, busy job but they were also very approachable. Although Dr Dillion was a very busy doctor, we found his care and advice to be excellent. We fortnightly have to travel to Perth for appointments and we are happy with the care we receive. The spinal clinic is very busy but the nurses, doctors and admin staff are always professional and caring. We do have to wait a very long time for the appointment, but I understand they are very busy.
