"The Nursing Team who cared for me at Sydney Hospital"

About: Sydney / Sydney Eye Hospital / 2 West & Hand Clinic

(as the patient),

I recently had to spend a few days in the hospital to sort out a nasty injury to my right hand.   Spending Xmas in hospital wasn’t what I’d planned 🙁, but I wanted to commend the nursing staff of East Ward for always having a positive and caring attitude towards their patients.   Everyone I dealt with offered the same high standard of care and professionalism.


Response from Carolyn Smith, Deputy Director, Nursing Services, (NUMs & After Hour Nurse Managers), Sydney and Sydney Eye Hospital

Each day our staff strive to give compassionate and professional care to all our patients and it is through feedback such as yours that we are rewarded in knowing how well they are succeeding. I will ensure your feedback is shared with the staff.

I hope your hand injury is healing well.
