As a cancer and chemotherapy patient living about an hour and a half drive south of Sale, but being treated in Melbourne hospitals, I had occasion to visit the E. D. of Sale Hospital when suffering a high temperature and a severe chest infection for help with my breathing.
I was taken in almost immediately, triaged and treatment started straight away by a team of happy, enthusiastic and excellent young nurses/sisters. One of these young ladies who stood out was Amy - first names were all I was ever introduced to.
I was tested for everything they could think of, had bloods and urine samples taken, an ECG and a lung X-ray, given I/V antibiotics and other medications orally, was informed every step of the way, and was most pleasantly surprised by the speed and effectiveness of the care I received there.
Hospitals in Melbourne are good and I have not many complaints there, but the service and fast care I received at Sale was impeccable and something for the city hospitals to aim for! (Yes, I know there would be a huge difference in patient numbers to staff ratio's even? )
