"Perth Children’s Hospital - short stay unit"

About: Perth Children's Hospital Perth Children's Hospital / Emergency Department

(as a parent/guardian),

My child was admitted overnight following an anaphylactic reaction. The whole experience, from arrival and treatment in ED to the care in Short Stay Unit and efficient discharge process the next morning, was so positive. All staff were fantastic, with special mention to our nurse overnight - Deb. She was so warm and genuine and really made a difference. We shared a few conversations, parent to parent, and I really appreciated how Deb listened to me.

Dear giftmx63,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide such lovely feedback.

I will personally ensure that Deb is aware of this.

Kind Regards,
