“I have had sev­eral ex­pe­ri­ences at Hornsby Hospi­tal emer­gency unit. One when they saved my brother's leg af­ter the wrong thing had been done at an­other hospi­tal - in the midst of car ac­ci­dents, foot­ball ac­ci­dents, a man who kept hav­ing heart at­tacks and a pedes­trian hit by a car, they looked af­ter him well, and showed com­pas­sion to me sit­ting with him all night in the cold. The nurse brought me warm blan­kets and said re­as­sur­ing things as they checked on him with in­cred­i­ble reg­u­lar­ity till he could get the help he needed. When my el­derly mother was there wait­ing for a hospi­tal bed they were also amaz­ing. I won't have a word said against them based on my ex­pe­ri­ences.” Rosie Charles.

“Hornsby emer­gency depart­ment saved my life in June, but the care I re­ceived af­ter­wards on the ward af­ter my huge op al­most killed me. I have noth­ing but praise for emer­gency but un­for­tu­nately will never, ever at­tend the hospi­tal again af­ter al­most dy­ing af­ter be­ing put on the ward with in­com­pe­tent staff, es­pe­cially the res­i­dents and ca­sual nurses! Hornsby needs a HUGE shake up. If it hadn't have been for the quick and clear think­ing of the head of ED I wouldn't be here to­day. I can't thank him enough.” Ni­cole Good­hew.

“Hornsby Hospi­tal ED and Pae­di­atric Doc­tors saved our daugh­ter’s life with their fast and ac­cu­rate di­ag­no­sis. I ap­pre­ci­ate ev­ery­one's story may be dif­fer­ent but I'm fairly cer­tain the pos­i­tive will out­weigh the neg­a­tive.” Michelle Des­marche­lier.
