My son hurt himself at a footy game recently one night. He made his own way to the Emergency department Armadale hospital later that night, and I went to meet him. When I got there 15 minutes later he was already triaged and the amazing doctor was immediately able to diagnose subcutaneous emphysema on a very small spot on his back, from a physical examination. This was backed up by ultrasound and CT, a rib fracture and a punctured lung.
The level of care from the triage staff, all the doctors, nurses and PCAs was outstanding, they were friendly professional and efficient. He was observed overnight in the Colyer ward and again I cannot thank the staff (doctors, nurses, physios) enough for the care and education they provided. We can't remember everyone's name, but my son would like to thank ED nurses Jade and Fritz and Colyer nurse Frans, and he would like to thank the physio Cassie. My most heartfelt thanks to Armadale hospital, East Metro Health Service.
"Thank you to all who cared for my teenager"
