"Being a patient in a respiratory ward"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Emergency department Wishaw General Hospital / Respiratory Medicine

(as the patient),

I was admitted with breathing difficulties, I was taken to accident and emergency then transferred to emergency care unit, then Ward 7. Unfortunately my health deteriorated and I spent a couple of times in high dependency unit on heated oxygen, and humidified oxygen. After high dependency on both occasions I was transferred back to Ward 7. Overall my stay in hospital was 6 weeks. The staff were really helpful. I have no complaints to make.
