Six weeks ago I spent five days in Wonthaggi Hospital having surgery for a total knee replacement.
From my initial appointment with the pre-admission clinic I was amazed at the attention to detail.
This included the excellent Infection Control Program, and also the anaesthetist’s thorough medical check.
As a patient I couldn’t fault the staff both in the theatre and on the surgical ward.
Nothing was ever too much trouble and always done with such a caring and professional approach.
This included the doctors, nurses, students, allied health assistants, porters, cleaners, meal services volunteers and the wonderful post-acute care services.
Having top specialists travelling from Melbourne each month is a wonderful draw card to Wonthaggi Hospital and for the community.
I feel very lucky having such a great local hospital 10 minutes from my doorstep.
Congratulations. Please keep up this high quality service at Wonthaggi.
