"Heroic Hospital Staff - The Alfred Hospital, Melbourne"

About: The Alfred / Emergency Department

(as other),

My foster son, was airlifted in critical condition from a fatal car crash. Emergency services personnel and, indeed, I thought doctors and other staff at the Alfred Hospital were convinced that he would die.

However, this did not seem to reduce the efforts made by three surgical teams through the night to piece him back together; all the time keeping us informed as to the progress.

I think that it was through their relentless efforts, my foster son survived. Sure, he'll never be quite the same but he can walk, earn a living for his wife and children and manages to overcome the pain and discomfort that will, I think, no doubt, be with him for the rest of his life.
