"Small bowel obstruction"

About: GPs in the Durack Electoral District St John of God Midland Hospital

(as the patient),

After 4 operations and over 80 days in hospital .

Overall I was very happy with the way I was treated by the nurse and staff , although some of the night staff could be better disciplined as to regular patient checks . Most of the nurses should be congratulated on their work , I have many that I wish that I could thank in person. The doctors did well, but some things could have been better explained. In the condition I was in at the time, I did not think to ask.

After care would have been good, I believe that there may have been some communication breakdown between the hospital and my local health providers .
