"anaphylactic shock"

About: Ilkeston Community Hospital

I arrived at the hospital with severe swelling and itching to my entire body due to an anaphylactic shock,although the receptionist didn't seem aware. The doctor called my name and calmly led me to a cubical and swiftly attached me to oxygen, and instructed their team on what injections were needed etc. The dr kept me,(and my dad) calm the entire time before handing me over to the ambulance team, who were also brilliant, even calling work for me to tell them I wouldn't be back.. Thank you, you are a star.
