"My Grandad"

About: Royal Berkshire Hospital / Urology

(as a relative),

My Grandad was in Royal Berkshire Hospital last year, when i was only 11 years old. As hard as this story is to tell, i want people to know how much this hurt.

My Grandad was ill and went into hospital for a water infection, a simple water infection, and came out with MRSA. He was placed in a private room, where his health deteriorated.

He went back to the care home, still with MRSA, and was never allowed to leave his room in case it spread. He went back into hospital where he died. He only went in for something simple and ended up with MRSA. I have never been in that hospital since and don't plan to soon.
