I was admitted to Ward 4 of Hairmyres Hospital recently late at night due to a sudden infection. Following initial investigations, treatment and ordering of further tests I was then transferred to Ward 6. My total stay was 3 nights.
At all stages the staff from Consultants, Doctors, Nursing Staff, Nursing Assistants, Porters, Discharge staff etc were professional, courteous, kind and friendly. I was kept fully updated at all stages of my stay as to treatment plans, tests and what would happen next. Nothing was a problem and all staff kept a careful eye on some more 'challenging' patients who had specific difficulties and needs.
I cannot fault the care and commitment of a large team of people who are very obviously good at what they do and do it very well under difficult circumstances at times. I would however comment that perhaps one or two could improve their phlebotomy skills 😁! !
