"Hospital Stay at Margaret a River Hospital"

About: Margaret River Hospital

(as the patient),

I’ve been here over several weeks and in the beginning didn’t like having the sides of my bed up in the night to stop me falling out and I was resisting it. Now I see it’s not the staff bossing me, but being nurturing and I am accepting it.

I’m enjoying the food, I’ll give it seven or eight out of ten. I often go into the day room for meal times, where there are nice comfortable chairs but there could be better selection of tv stations. Nothing in the DVDs interested me.

I wondered if the day room could be set up in an afternoon for patients to play cards sometimes if anyone else was interested.

A huge thank you to all the staff who do a great job and are very friendly.

Dear rhinomj85,

We value the feedback we have received from you as it helps us to recognise areas for improvement.

We are setting up a DVD library through our hospital volunteers that will build a bank of DVD’s so hopefully there will be some great movies for you to watch.

We have also been looking at a table to place in the day room for card playing and also for sharing lunch or morning tea.

I look forward to showing you our new purchases when they arrive.

I have passed on your lovely compliments to our staff that indeed do a great job every day.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us and we wish you all the best.

Kind regards

Marie Tweedie

District Manager
