"Great caring staff and great overall experience"

About: University Hospital Aintree

I recently went into the hospital for a bilateral extraction of my lower wisdom teeth under GA. I was last on the waiting list but the staff made sure I wasn't bored or lonely and even gave me a reclining chair to sit on! The operation itself was very straightforward and I was put at ease during in the antithetic room. The nurse who put in my cannula was very gentle and I barely felt a thing. In the recovery room I was also well cared for; given extra blankets, oxygen and helped to dress. I had palpitations after waking up and was quickly monitored on the heart machine and all the staff seemed to be on the ball and working hard. The hospital was clean, modern and comfortable and I feel so relieved to have had a good experience. Thanks alot!
