"Presentation at Emergency - Excellent"
Posted by Quaqz73 (as ),
Cannot thank Bass Coast Health enough for the treatment my husband received when he experienced a stroke. The moment my husband approached the window at Emergency and said he had pins and needles in his arm, Annie was off her chair and got the needs for my husband rolling. Next into Triage where Belinda got all of his information and within minutes he was in an emergency bed. Nurse Catherine set him up with a ECG machine where Dr Alan was overseeing, gathering all information so he could give my husband the correct treatment. I gave the doctor the details including the medications and within minute Dr Alan was on the phone with a neurologist. After obtaining the information from the ECG, my husband was on his way with Mark to have a CT Scan. The efficiency of the way the doctor and emergency team communicated not just us, but all the patients in their care is so admirable. Later on in the evening I was talking with Annie and it was 16 minutes from my husbands arrival to Emergency, from being monitored on an ECG. Absolutely fabulous care! My husband was in hospital, on a bed within half an hour of him feeling pins and needles in his arm. Dr Alan said there is a four hour window between recovery difference. It is now 2 days on and my husband is feeling a lot better already. Thank you again for the exceptional treatment he was given. He is very lucky.
