"Triage Care, excellent at Wyong Public Hospital"

About: Wyong Public Hospital

(as the patient),

After having a blood test as ordered by my doctor, I was contacted by the surgery who were concerned with the results. They asked me to go straight to Accident and Emergency and he would fax through my results. I was quite concerned about this and did as directed. I was taken straight into triage and placed on a heart monitor, had another blood test taken and then was cannulated, much to my surprise. I was then allocated a bed in Triage. The Triage staff were excellent, and even though they were flat out this day, they managed to find me some food and drink and check on my needs regularly. I was in there for well over 12 hours and had numerous bags of fluid administered before I was released. The doctors were very knowledgeable and very kind to me, keeping me informed of my condition, it's cause and what would be required in future treatment. It's not my first experience with Triage at Wyong, but I can resolutely say that every time I have had a family member in Triage the nurses and doctors have been nothing short of brilliant. They do a wonderful job.
