I have found the Royal Childrens Hopsital to be nothing but amazing! My daughter has had two lots of surgery recently and they have been fabulous. She has both of her big toenails pulled off last week to stop ingrowns happening and the doctors were nothing but amazing. My daughter is only 18 months so she has been through a lot with medical treatment to date and she just enjoys the hospital so much! The aquarium and the meerkats make her so happy!

  • Meerkats – what fun when you have to be in hospital.


  • wow that is great that they have an aquarium and what! MEERKATS? lol. i think that those hospitals need to be kid friendly to ease the children’s fear about the hospital. i am glad that your child likes to go because that must make those busy appointments a lot less stressful.


  • Such a good story to read. Hospital can be a difficult place to be when you have sick babies, it’s great to see hospitals putting in the effort to try and make them les scary. Glad that you little one is ok and had nothing serious wrong with her


  • We are so very lucky to have such a great medical system with such wonderful medical staff. Hopefully things improve health wise for your little one over time. can’t imagine how painful those toenails must have been!


  • I’m so glad you have had such a wonderful experience.I have never heard anything bad about the royal children’s hospital
    Hope your little one recovers quickly


  • Wow I have had my nail as well as the nail bed removed on both my large toes (hospital) and two smaller toes in a doctors surgery, all I can say is it’s painful. I wish your little one all the very best and am sending gentle cuddles and wishes for a speedy recovery.
    Thanks for the great report on the Children’s Hospital and may I suggest if you have not yet done so a quick letter to the hospital would be appreciated and most welcome.

    • It is an incredibly painful operation – I second that one!


  • Glad to read about this hospital and your experience being a positive one. Hospitals and their staff are wonderful. Hope your little one is ok.
