"Got stitched up (in a good way)"

About: Angliss Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

I headed to the Emergency Department at the William Angliss Hospital in Ferntree Gully after a cricketing mishap where I copped a ball in the face. Every step of the way every staff member was personable and professional. I was assessed by a triage nurse who was lovely. I was the admitted and the nursing staff and doctor were first rate. I was stitched up in no time. The bedside manner was very personable which distracted me from the pain of the procedure. What a fantastic bunch of people!

It is terrific to hear that you had such a positive experience at the Angliss Hospital. I was so pleased to hear that every interaction you had with staff was positive and professional and that you received care in such a timely way.

I will ensure that the Managers of the Emergency Department receive your story and I am sure they will share this with their staff. It is always lovely to receive positive feedback and a real boost to our staff so thanks again.
