About: Kalgoorlie Health Campus / Emergency Department

Thanks to the whole team at Kalgoorlie Hospital for the care they gave to my young teenage child this afternoon. 

Everyone from triage through to admin and x-ray was professional and caring despite it clearly being a busy afternoon. Everyone introduced themselves to us and put us right at ease.  

A special mention has to be made of Dr Arusha. She clearly loves her work and the effort she makes to talk to and connect with her patients was great, what an asset to the team.

Thanks also to nurses Kylie and Jean, you are greatly appreciated.  

Whilst starting the summer school holidays with a plaster is not ideal, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. And especially with Christmas coming, we wanted you all to know how much the community appreciates you all.

Dear Bananablueorangecloud,

Thank you for your lovely feedback about our Emergency Department.

Sounds like not a great start to summer holidays for your teen, their arm being put in plaster, but I am happy that their experience in Emergency was so positive.

Your special mention of Dr Arush is noted and your feedback will be passed on directly. Best wishes for the Christmas and New Year break, hopefully not visiting Emergency again!

Kind regards

David Bowdidge
