"My hospital nurse"

About: Sydney / Sydney Eye Hospital / 2 West & Hand Clinic

(as the patient),

I recently attended the Sydney Eye Hospital for hand surgery. I was lucky to have met some really amazing nurses but one in particular that I would like to send a shout out to. 

Kate, you’re an absolute legend of a nurse. From the welcoming smile in admission, walking me to surgery, telling me jokes to keep my anxiety settled and then when I returned to the ward, a lovely Cuppa waiting for me. 

Thanks again and I wish you all the best in your Nursing career.

Dear couragege46,

Undergoing surgery can be such a daunting experience, so it makes me extremely happy to hear Kate was able to make this experience a lot less stressful for you. The way you describe the care provided to you is a true reflection of our hospital CORE values. I was proud to share your feedback with Kate’s Manager and specifically Kate, who I know will appreciate that she contributed to a positive experience for you.

Thank you again for writing to us, and I hope you have now recovered from your procedure. On behalf of Kate, I would like to say thank you for the encouraging and wonderful feedback.

Regards,

Alan

Director of Nursing & Support Services
