"My child's accident"

About: Broome Health Campus / Emergency Department

(as a parent/guardian),

My child had hit their head and needed stitches. The triage nurse "Scotty" and the two doctors who cared for my child were amazing. My child now wants to be a doctor.

Dear Panda

Thankyou for sharing your story on Patient Opinion.

It is a very frightening moment when you child hits their head and requires stitches.

Hospital can be a scary place for a child and big people too!

It is reassuring to see the staff recognise this and do their best to provide comfort and reassurance.

I will pass on your comments to Scotty and the staff.

I hope your child is making a speedy recovery and I will look forward to hearing about Doctor Panda in the future!

Kind Regards

Maureen Crowther
