"Very impressed with majority of nursing staff at Maroondah Hospital"

Admission through emergency with a staph infection in foot. Once on a ward, very impressed with majority of nursing staff, in particular Dearn, Daniel, Mia, Fiona and Carol, who were incredibly friendly, proactive and caring. Being a private patient I found the quality of the nursing staff to be better than what I had previously experienced at a nearby private hospital.
Unfortunately, my experience as an outpatient left a lot to be desired - a 2 hours + wait for a scheduled appointment is not good enough. When I rang to cancel my following appointment (because I couldn't afford to wait that long again) I was told that "this is what happens in the public system". Not a particularly good advertisement for Maroondah hospital or the public system. Why bother to even give a designated appointment time?
