"nursing and pain treatment"

About: University Hospital Wishaw / General Surgery University Hospital Wishaw / Pain management

(as the patient),

I was recently in for a serious operation. Could I just mention the excellent care I received in the acute care unit. The nurses looking after me could not have been better and from what I saw that applied to all the patients there.

After a few days I was moved to ward 16 and again the care was excellent. Although the nurses had more patients to look after they did their best and generally achieved a good standard of care.

Finally, may I thank the pain control nurse for reducing my pain levels very effectively and efficiently
