"Terrible Emergency Department experience"

About: Albany Health Campus / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

Recently went to Albany Hospital Emergency Department. The staff that we saw took hours to help anyone, and I felt that they didn't care about patients. We were waiting all night. I felt staff were unhelpful and uncaring. Terrible. Needs fixing.

Dear Annoyed Albany resident

Thank you very much for taking the time to post about your experience at Albany Health Campus. We value the feedback we receive from our community as it helps us to identify potential areas for improvement.

Patient numbers at the Emergency Department have been very high over Christmas and New Year and the staff in ED have been working very hard to care for all patients attending over this period. I am sorry that you feel dissatisfied with the care you received. If you would like to contact our Consumer Feedback Coordinator, Dr Ceinwen Gearon on 9892 2284 or via the email address GS.PSQU@health.wa.gov.au and provide us with more details about your visit, we can investigate the circumstance relating to the disappointing level of care you received.

Your sincerely

Barbara Marquand
