"A fall accident"

About: Sydney / Sydney Eye Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

While crossing the pedestrian crossing at Sydney's Central Railway Station I fell, hitting my face on the pavement. I was shocked & bleeding from facial abrasions. A passerby notified the Railway First Aide Officer. He was excellent. Called the paramedics, who were also excellent, very caring, professional and took me to Sydney Hospital's A& E. Again I received excellent, professional & caring attention, both Nursing & Medical care.
