"My little one's little fingers"

About: Esperance Health Campus / Emergency Department Perth Children's Hospital Royal Flying Doctor Service

(as a parent/guardian),

Myself and my family want to thank all the staff who were on duty Thursday night at the Esperance Hospital. For the help and care of my child. I know most nurses and doctors don't know the outcome once patients are sent off through Royal Flying Doctors. And so you all know - the amazing doctors at Perth Children's Hospital reattached both fingers and my child will have full feeling and movement after 3 weeks of healing in a cast. So thank you all who got everything moving fast enough for my child's fingers to be saved. I am forever grateful. xxx
