"Thank you"

About: Musgrove Park Hospital

My father, Knud Ove Ravnkilde, was admitted on the morning of 13/12/2013 following a fall. He had previously been admitted for a similar fall earlier that year. With the latter, it was apparent that he was suffering not only terminal cancer, haematoma, but severe respiratory infections eventually led him to pass away on the 9th January 2014. I visited a number of times before Christmas and would like to say a big thank you to all the staff who were involved in his treatment and welfare. I am also glad to say that the ward was access controlled and staff attentive as I am fully aware how the elderly and weak can be exploited and intimidated. My thanks again, Steffen Ravnkilde.
