"My child journey through ED today at Broome Hospital"

About: Broome Health Campus / Emergency Department

(as a parent/guardian),

My child had abdominal pain which was not getting better. We went to ED at Broome hospital. There we were greeted by a friendly and caring triage nurse, who focused on my child and asked them the questions (checking in with me to confirm). We then went in greeted by a caring and engaging doctor who took the time to make my child feel at ease before the examination. From there into x-ray, where again a friendly staff radiographer greeted us with patience - all the time focusing on the patient. From there the doctor consulted with a colleague to ensure accurate and appropriate treatment.
