"Never leave valuables in the hospital"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

The nurses who took care of my dad, who died in the Heart and Lung Unit, were marvellous.

However, the watch my dad was wearing, which was of great sentimental value, has gone missing and has never been found.

My dad was supposed to be buried with the watch but now it will not be possible.

Just make sure that you take all items of value before you leave a loved one, or you just might not see them again.
