"Admission to emergency"

About: Wonthaggi Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

Fainted recently and then was violently ill into a bag. On admission was treated and processed by three excellent caring and efficient nurses. I was seen almost immediately by Dr Pete who I felt possesses all the qualities of an exceptional and experienced doctor in my opinion.

Various tests were done to ensure that my problem was purely gastric - very thorough, including a diabetes test and an ECG. All staff were very caring and efficient despite the fact that they were experiencing an exceptionally busy shift.
