"Such excellent treatment in Ward 14"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

I was admitted - reluctantly to Ward 14 at about 2330, tired, in pain and full of knockout medication.

I did not want to stay in and was, I am ashamed to say, very unreasonable. This is not typical behaviour for me.

The Staff Nurse and another nurse were very kind and patient.

They deserved the apologies I made.

Their care was excellent.

Like wise all of the Day staff were also so very, very good, professional and kind.

This Ward is a credit to the hospital.

Thank you.
