Woman suffers head injury after fall

Friday 4 December 2020

A 40-year-old woman has fallen down two flights of stairs and sustained head injuries at a Kingswood parking lot.

The woman lost consciousness from the impact.

CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly after 8:50am and landed 15 minutes later in Kingswood Oval. NSW Police escorted the clinical team to the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment on the woman, including an ultrasound to assess her injuries. The patient was intubated and CareFlight’s clinical team placed her in an induced coma to stabilise her.

The woman was taken by road with NSW Ambulance under ongoing observation from CareFlight’s clinical team to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.
