"Pulsating abdomen"

About: Merredin Health Service / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

I presented to Merredin Hospital ED with abdominal discomfort. Was efficiently seen and triaged by the Nurse Practioner Robbie. The emergency care provided by him and the team was exceptional with thorough assessment and management by him and his team. This was despite there being another emergency with higher priority in the bay next to me. The doctor and nursing team were professional and knowledgeable and Merredin Hospital gets the thumbs up from me.

Dear Panic Mechanic

Thank you for your very kind words.

I was pleased to hear that our team provided you with exceptional care whilst also attending another emergency in the bay next to you.

We are very fortunate to have such dedicated and compassionate staff at Merredin. They take pride in ensuring every patient is treated and assessed with the same professionalism no matter what they present with.

I will take great pleasure in passing on your compliment to Robbie, his manager and the extended team.

Again thank you for sharing your story with us and hope you are recovering well.

Kind regards
