"David Beaver Day Unit"

About: St James's University Hospital

Upon arrival on the David Beaver ward through the night I was greetednby the senior nurse, and two other members of staff who took my bags, gave me assistance into getting to bed and made sure I was settled for the night.

However I caught a really bad infection and sickness bug and I couldnt be more grateful for the nurses stayimg by my side the whole time and making sure I was comfortable and in no pain. Unfortunately I had to have a catheter fitted and during the process the nurses made me feel at so much ease and talked me through the whole process.

I couldnt be more grateful for the amount of respect, care and love I was shown throughout the four days I was on the ward and the nurses deserve much more recognition for what they do.
