"Treatment beyond expectations at Augusta Hospital, WA"

About: Augusta Hospital

(as the patient),

About a month ago, I found it necessary to attend the hospital due to an infected Cyst on my neck.

The daily treatment for almost 2 weeks was exceptional and my problems were eventually overcome in Perth some 2 weeks later.

There was a specific act on the part of one of the nurses who was concerned about me seeing a doctor asap over the weekend. I was to make an appointment, which I did, however none was available until the Tuesday and I accepted the time.

On the Monday morning, I received a telephone call from the Nurse who last treated me on the Saturday advising me that she had checked that I had made an appointment on the Tuesday however she was concerned that the delay was too long and then made arrangement for the visiting GP at the hospital to see me around 2 pm on the Monday.

This wonderful nurse went way beyond expectations with her actions in ensuring my treatment was properly managed.

Appreciate your response.

It is a key element in customer service to celebrate good service. It has driven me in every aspect of my life. Spreading experiencing good deeds, treatment or service has a very positive emotional impact on one's soul and it is a lasting impact.

I wish all staff every success in their respective lives.
