I presented to ED with fever, nausea and pain consistent with acute appendicitis. From triage to MIT to surgery, I received amazing care and efficiency. I would like to thank Dr Sach, Fiona, Annette and Nicole for their attentiveness and care.
I felt quite vulnerable initially as a current employee but everyone made me feel relaxed and kept me involved in the clinical discussion and decision-making process.
Thanks to Nina and Ali in MIT for showing great care and for explaining all the weird sensations I would feel having a contrast CT.
The theatre nursing staff I was in contact with, Leanne and Linda made me feel comfortable and in competent hands.
A special thanks to my anaesthetist Yehuda who also was very reassuring and made sure I was comfortable and woke up 👍😊.
An extra special thanks to my beautiful primary ward nursing staff Stacey and Melissa who treated me with dignity and care in my vulnerable post op faze where I was in pain and nauseous.
The surgical round, whilst thorough, was quite confronting even to me as a clinician. There was a 'cast of thousands'. I felt a little intimidated by this experience and had to dig deep to ask questions; however, my questions were taken seriously and considered responses received. I imagine this would be even more confronting for our Aboriginal clients.
I would also like to thank the support services staff Wayne, Mathew, Donelle, Betty and Lynne for being friendly and efficient.
Thanks to all afternoon staff in anticipation of receiving the same awesome standard of care.
