    My story

Made several trips back to the emergency department to make the complaint that there was something wrong, got told it was all in my head. Went and saw my GP where I got a referral to the QEII Hospital and after an x-ray they found that it had been set incorrectly with the ulnar longer that the radius bone. Now on a waiting list for surgery for a plate in my wrist.</p><p>I then took my child to Ipswich...Read more

    Waiting at Geraldton Hospital Emergency Department

    I recently attended the Geraldton Hospital Emergency Department as I had a bad cut. The staff were wonderful very caring and kind but I had to wait for hours, I think it was around 5 hours. Nobody knew what was going on, nobody told us. People were going in and out but the waiting room remained full.Read more

    An experience regarding a day procedure in the Gynae unit at Sunshine Hospital - Vic

    <p>I had my pre-admission appointment 2 weeks before the procedure which was very thorough and informative. At all stages I was given the time to ask questions and be informed. I arrived for my procedure a few minutes late at 7: 05. Unfortunately I was first on the list and had missed my name being called. It was probably 30 min before I started the prep. Despite my delay possibly making the list run late, at no time was I pressured or hurried during the prep process. As a former nurse I was impressed at the professionalism and thoroughness of each staff member at each point of the...Read more
