"Spruce ward"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

My daughter was discharged from spruce ward today after an 8 day stay. My daughter is only 21 and has had serious neurological problems most of her life she was admitted with a blinding headache and was in agony. As promised on day 2 the pain nurse visited her and reviewed her meds and 48 hours later her headache had greatly improved. Neurology ran some tests also. The staff worked as a team and I new what was going on at all times as well as rebekah. My daughter was treated with kindness and respect as we're all the other patients . The stroke patients were treated with dignity and respect and sometimes I was near to tears see g the compassion shown by the staff. Thank you so very much for helping my daughter get better and for easing the burden of having a very unwell relative
