    under-staffed at matilda?

    our obgyn just told us to think twice about delivering at matilda as they are chronically under-staffed. has anyone else heard about or experienced this?

    No- planning to give birth at Matilda sometime in next three weeks and oby hasn't said anything.

    He did mention something about a shortage of experienced nurses in HK, but said it hadn't affected the Matilda, although he did advice against using another private hospital on HK Island due to lack of experienced nurses.

    If they are understaffed you would never have known it. When I had my bub there in May they attended to my every need. Always friendly and polite. They always tell you to use your buzzer for what ever you want. When you do buzz they get to you straight away. The care I got at Matilda was brillliant. They were so helpfull, informative and encouraging with everything especially breastfeeding. My stay there was a lovely experience.

    Hi,
    I second Kimmi. I delivered in June for the second time at the Matilda. It was fantastic. Wonderful staff, helpful and very caring. I can't recommend the Matilda enough and if we're lucky enough to have another child I just hope we're still here so that it can be born at the Matilda.

    Have sent you pm- it's his personal opinion, so don't want to go creating negative reaction to somewhere I have no experience of!
