"Brilliant care at Broome Hospital"

About: Broome Health Campus / Allied Health Broome Health Campus / General ward Broome Health Campus / Specialist Outpatients Broome Health Campus / Theatre

(as the patient),

I recently had surgery and needed to stay overnight on the general ward. I felt extremely well cared for and safe throughout my stay. The day surgery and theatre staff were friendly, welcoming and calming before and after my surgery. A special shout-out to my anaesthetist who gave me one of the greatest sleeps I've ever had! The recovery staff ensured my pain was under control before transferring me. The ward nurses were also very caring and friendly, nothing was too much to ask for. All of the staff were very professional and it was great to see nursing students receiving quality training from the nursing staff. I have also received great follow up care from the physio department and dressing clinic nurses. From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank the following people for the fantastic holistic care they gave during my experience: theatre and day surgery nurses, ward nurses (and student), specialist center nurses, wound clinic nurses, the anaesthetist, the surgeon, physios, ward clerks from all departments, pharmacy, orderleys, kitchen staff and cleaners.

Dear jivejb87

Thank you for giving such glowing feedback about the care you received from so many staff at Broome Hospital.

Beyond theatre, about 40 members of the hospital team worked seamlessly together to ensure that your experience of all aspects of our care was kind and respectful, thorough yet dignified.

I'll make sure your gratitude and commendation are passed on. Thanks for sharing your story.

Wishing you a speedy recovery,
