Just last week, my dad (in his mid 70's) was urgently taken to Crosshouse hospital experiencing cardiac arrhythmia, and feeling very unwell. He was kept overnight in the emergency dept and then for a 4 further days as inpatient on Ward 4E.
I live in Canada. It is always challenging and worrisome when your loved ones back home are sick and admitted to hospital. On being discharged home, my dad shared with me, how good he found the nursing care in Ward 4E. He tells me he was visited daily by i think the managers of the unit, he called them "sisters", who would share information with him and help him better understand what was happening with his condition. He couldn't remember their names, although they did share them. They answered his many questions, were kind and very caring towards him. His comment "they were so kind, nothing was a bother".
I thought it important to share this, and i hope it reaches the nursing staff of ward 4E. Thankyou all for making this worrying time much easier with kindness, caring and compassion.
