"Life saving care at Geraldton and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital"
Posted by extremely grateful (as ),
My husband was admitted to Geraldton Regional Hospital after collapsing. The staff there were helpful and caring. The prognosis for him was not good. He was not going to last the night. He did though and they did another scan which was sent to Perth. The surgeon on there said to get him to Perth as soon as possible. The staff at Sir Charles Gairdner were terrific. The surgeon rang me himself to inform me that he was about to operate and that he would ring again when he had finished, which he did in the early hours of the morning as that is when the operation was finished. The staff at this hospital were great as I was always informed about what was going to happen. My husband suffered an aortic embolism, which 1 in 5 survives. He was the 1 who did. I will always praise the staff at Geraldton Regional Hospital and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital.
