"Excellent care for an elderly patient"

About: Torbay Hospital

Anything else?

My 85 year old aunt suffered a stroke and was in a coma when she entered Torbay hospital. Sadly she died after 2 weeks. But in that time she was looked after in the best way possible. Treated with respect, in the cleanest possible conditions by caring and communicative staff. Doctors nurses and other staff were all great, and involved family in all aspects. The staff in the office where papers had to be collected after her death were efficient and sensitive . Thank you Torbay hospital for making a difficult time the best it could be.
