"My visit at Maroondah Hospital"

About: Maroondah Hospital Maroondah Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

I had a motorbike accident recently and the ambulance took me to Maroondah Hospital as it was the closest hospital with an emergency department. I spent the night in the emergency department before being transferred to the short stay unit and ultimately onto the ward. I cannot thank the nursing staff and doctors that cared for me during my stay enough. Particular thanks to Jess in the emergency department and Saahara on the ward who looked after me.

Dear lepusrj55

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback on Patient Opinion.

I was so pleased and proud to read how the nurses and doctors, particularly Jess in the Emergency Department and Saahara in the ward, made you feel to make what must have been a very difficult event into such a positive experience.

I hope you are well on the way to recovery lepusrj55. It will give me great pleasure to pass your feedback onto the staff involved as well as their managers.

Kind regards
