I had surgery at Epworth hospital twice this year and both times the staff and facilities were excellent. Epworth is pioneering minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery and has some of the best surgeons and specialists all round.
Think twice - 3 hour wait and didn't see a Doctor
Left Emergency Department after waiting more than 3 hours on a Monday evening to see a Doctor - my daughter has either appendicitis or gastro. She had been sick for 3 days and unable to get appointment with local GP. Admission desk clerk said we would need to speak with triage nurse regarding likely wait time (this was after 2 hours of waiting). Triage nurse did not reappear. If this was a public hospital I would expect a wait time like this. However this is a private fee charging facility which is supposed to see patients relatively quickly. Not impressed.
My kindest thoughts and gratitude to the staff and Specialists at Epworth Hospital and Epworth Centre for their professional, friendly, and compassionate service. You made a big difference, when seeing through an unpleasant process.
my experience wasn't as good as my husband had poor quality of care less than 24 hours of major heart surgery due to staff shortages......he was hocked up on morphine, sore feet due to no movement, no one bothered to order dinner due to not having a dedicated nurse?
