"kindness and compassion"

About: Torbay Hospital

Anything else?

My sister was taken into Torbay Hosp A&E by ambulance and spent time in A&E, EAU3 and Warrington Ward. She was suffering with a non moving stupor as a result of very serious mental health issues and was subsequently transferred to a mental health hospital. The staff at Torbay hospital were wonderful. They offered kindness, compassion and humanity. Their patience and professionalism shone through. They helped my sister begin to move, they made sure she was not dehydrated, they helped her to start to eat., they made sure she was clean and comfortable. The dignity my sister was allowed was outstanding. Thank you.
