"The excellent care and assistance at Sale Hospital"
Posted by hippodm69 (as ),
Last year I was referred to ED at the Sale Hospital by the Addiction Medicine and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. My autoimmune disease had progressed so I had frequent falls and broken bones. I was admitted to the Women's and Children unit to be assessed by allied health staff, to help me live independently and safely at home.
The level of care from the nurses and doctors that attended to me is of a very high standard and often overwhelming. I enjoyed my stay at the hospital and cannot fault the staff involved in my care.
I was seen by the social worker, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and pharmacist. The social worker encouraged me to apply for NDIS assistance, which I did and I was accepted as a client. It has made a huge difference to my life as I cannot drive.
One of the casual nurses told me she had never heard of my autoimmune disease as it is quite rare and I should write a book about it. I thought what a brilliant idea and with the help of my creative writing class, I published my first book last year, called My Life with Myositis. I am grateful to my Nurse Practitioner for referring me to the Creative Writing Classes and to the teacher for her assistance in getting my book published.
