I was fast tracked into coronary as it had racing heart beat for period of time.
I was met the moment I entered front doors by various staff who had a smile , a aura of calmness and confidence in their specialist fields.They effortlessly calmed me down within minutes and gave me a confidence that I was in professional safe hands.
Over the course of 5 hours , I was regularly checked for temp , heart tracing , blood pressure , given chest x Ray , bloods talked and analysed and even given a choice of meal with cup of tea.
As my heart was beating so fast , the sen consultant decided on an injection (Adenosine ! ) and he prepared me for the short discomfort I’d feel when administered. All was ok.
It’s been said by numerous people that nursing ( all levels in the medical field) is a vocation by people who’s sole delight is in helping others . This can never be challenged ... ever. They are all our angels on this earth.
Thank you all
