Nicki’s decision to support Ambulance Victoria as well as have complete peace of mind for her family proved to be a smart one. She’s needed to call an ambulance several times and on more than one occasion her private health insurance wouldn’t have covered the emergency attendance fees.
Samuel had a seizure because of meningitis. He aspirated and his lungs collapsed. We didn’t hesitate to ring an ambulance.
On the way to hospital the paramedics, stabilised him until he received the treatment he required in hospital.
The paramedics had done an extraordinary job and been through a difficult experience but then didn’t just leave me in emergency when my son was taken to be treated immediately. They assisted the medical staff and were also keeping an eye on me to make sure I was OK and fully aware of what was going on.
The individual paramedics checked on his progress in hospital and a week later contacted me to ask about him. This frightening journey was made so much easier knowing that the ambulance service had the resources to save my son and the bonus was the feeling that they cared.
We’ve saved over $2000 by being members of Ambulance Victoria. Yes, we have private health insurance but we wouldn’t be without Ambulance Victoria cover as it gives my family complete peace of mind.
