Wow, the professionalism and compassionate care shown to my sister presenting to ED after earlier discharge from a ward recently was absolutely first rate. My sister had a full mastectomy for cancer and being in hospital for it for a week - all the ward nurses, doctors etc etc were awesome too. Becoming unwell on the way home and having to return to hospital was extremely upsetting and unsettling for her. From the second we presented to Triage, we (my sister most importantly), were shown and given nothing but the highest level of professionalism, compassion and empathy. Stephanie Jess B, and Doctor, thank you so much for making such a difference during an extremely difficult time for my sister. It really is the little things at times that make a horrible situation bearable. I always say, it doesn't matter how much "fancy, high tech stuff " a hospital has, it really is the staff who "make it or break it"... the situation / experience. Again, many thanks.
