"Terminal stroke patient"

About: Torbay Hospital

My mother in law had a severe stroke and was admitted to A&E, transferred to EAU3 ward and subsequently to George Earle Ward where she died 6 days later. The care and kindness she received throughout was fantastic. The staff from the paramedics onward were highly professional, caring and understanding. Throughout she was kept comfortable and clean. The staff were also very compassionate in working with my wife and I. Tea and biscuits in the middle of the night were greatly appreciated! Thanks to everyone
