"Caring staff at Bunbury Hospital ED"

About: Bunbury Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

I presented to the ED twice with chest pain and fast heart rate. I was frightened and stressed and very anxious. Going anywhere near health care I become very anxious. I have lost family members here in sad circumstances previously and it is difficult to fight my flight response. But staff reassured me with telling me their names, calling me by mine. Taking time to talk with me and explain what was happening. Telling me I was safe and treating me both professionally and kindly. Thank you to everyone in the ED and Short Stay Unit. Should I ever need to go to the hospital again I will find it easier.
