I went to A&E on Monday 19/5/14@ 10pm with severe hyperemisis at 15 weeks pregnant. It was very busy, with only one receptionist and one triage nurse. But even so, I was seen quite quickly and the nurse on duty was so kind and was really empathetic. It was a nightmare trying to find a vein as I was severely dehydrated and vomiting every 5 minutes, but he managed to cannulate me with ease and get me straight to pearl ward where I received, again excellent treatment. Needless to say I was very impressed with the standard and quality of care I received in A&E, this nurse is truly an asset to Medway hospital. I have never received care like that by a nurse, especially by one so busy in A&E. I would like to say thank you to him personally for being so kind, when I was so ill and very stressed. It makes a huge difference knowing your in good hands.
