"I felt safe in the doctors hands"
Posted by Tiff (as ),
Had major bowel surgery end August. Was initially on day case post op for 8 days. Went home only to be readmitted a week later with complications. Admitted onto 5A.
All staff, in a/e, on 5a, nurses, especially colorectal nurses,doctors, admin staff, house keepers, cleaners, were lovely.
It was a traumatic experience in the fact I was so poorly but I was very happy with all the care I received.
I am a nurse and I saw a different side, being the patient . It really does help when your not well and everyone is so caring. I felt safe in the doctors hands.
