"My Child's Broken Foot"

About: Wonthaggi Hospital / Emergency Department

(as a parent/guardian),

I took my adolescent child to the Emergency Department of Wonthaggi Hospital.

They were suffering from a sore ankle following a fall into an "underwater pothole" at Nippers at Venus Bay.

They hobbled in on crutches - courtesy of grandpa - with a strapped ankle - courtesy of mum, with assistance from their Uncle - and hobbled out with plaster wrapped around their broken foot.

Every person who assisted us was a delight:

- the Covid screening gentleman on the front door;

- the Covid logging woman seated inside the front door (she too had a child with the same name);

- the triage nurse;

- the receptionist;

- the radiographer (Helen?); and 

- the doctor (Bayleigh).
