"They always say people aged over 50 shouldn't climb ladders - they are right!"
Posted by POJUL05 (as ),
I was up a ladder, slipped and I fell to the ground with severe pain in my back. An ambulance was called & I was brought to the emergency department at Box Hill.
I was first treated in the emergency department and after x-rays & scans I was moved to the short stay area where I stayed until a bed became available at the Austin hospital the following evening.
I would especially like to thank the staff who looked after me in the short stay department - Catherine (afternoon shifts), Kath (night shifts) & Sarah (morning shift).
