My husband came home from work and started shivering fiercely! He had no idea what was happening to him and had a hot shower to see if it made a difference. He returned to the lounge room in a beanie and his dressing gown while also fully clothed. I took his blood pressure and it was quite high and his temperature was also very high so I phoned the hospital. When the nurse answered she told me to bring him in immediately so we left for the hospital.
On arrival 2 nurses went into full swing and nothing was missed. We also had a video conference with a doctor from Albany Hospital. We were in Emergency from 12.45 till 5 pm and my husband had the best treatment and care. They took bloods, gave him penicillin and also a drip, took throat swabs and a chest X-ray. When we left my husband was feeling a lot better and peace of mind that the nurses had found out what was wrong with him. Many thanks to the staff & nurse at Kalbarri Hospital for your diligence and caring natures. We can't thank you enough.
