"My husbands care after bypass surgery"

About: Hammersmith Hospital

My husband had bypass surgery, which was very successful .Unfortunatley he got a chest infection after, through no fault of the hospital.He was in the cardiac recovery unit for over three weeks.For a while he was critical, and I strongly believe if it wasn't for the level of nursing. Also the doctors care and knowledge ,that he may not have recovered.I cannot speak highly enough of everybody that cared for him whilst he was there.I could ring anytime to check his progress,and was always fully informed on how he was doing.
