Posted by Dynger the Ringer (as ),
n behalf of my wife and myself I would like to thank the excellent staff in the CCU for saving my life at the beginning of February when I was blue lighted to Musgrove Park Hospital after a cardiac arrest at church whilst bell ringing.
My good fortune is to be alive, all thanks to the friends by my side at the time who performed CPR, used a defibrillator available nearby in the village and the dedicated ambulance staff who called in the CCU team led by Mo who awaited me on arrival at Musgrove Park.
Within 3 hours and after a very difficult insertion of two stents I was safely in bed on the CCU ward.
What wonderful dedicated staff you have. The care I received was absolutely first class and second to none. We enjoyed much banter and laughter which helped in what was a very frightening episode in our lives.
I wished to give praise where it is due and have already sent a thank you card to everyone on the ward.
Everything about the hospital shouted quiet efficiency to me, from the surgeons, nurses, cleaners and the staff who served up the excellent food, to the car park staff. All helped to turn a horrible experience into a positively pleasant one.
I am also so very grateful, as is my wife, for arranging accommodation for her in the League of Friends Bungalow, which was such a peaceful haven amidst the unexpected chaos. This saved my wife from driving daily to and from home. We will be expressing our thanks to them also.
All in all such a positive experience and when a place as large as Musgrove Park runs so well, I feel much of this emanates from leadership at the top.
Words are not sufficient for the thanks which I wish to extend to you and all who looked after me so very well. I am so grateful for my life being saved and I will forever remember this turning point and the start of my “second” life.
Thank you all so much
