I was recently rushed to hospital due to several weeks of regularly vomiting, diarrhoea, acute chest pain and discomfort, and giddiness. I had consulted with my GP on a few occasions and each time told to come back if no improvement, it likely was a virus. Intuitively I felt it was more serious. One night I called the paramedics.
On admission to A&E at NHS Forth Valley I was becoming quite disorientated but was aware of quick, efficient, detailed, professional attention from all staff. Next day I was admitted to Ward 11, where I stayed for about 8 days ... sepsis, gallstones, inflammation and so on were diagnosed - I was regularly monitored, staff answered questions I had, staff serving food were highly personable, food had a variety of choices. I was meant to be on a low fat diet - but the meals didn't reflect this. That said they were enjoyable. Nurses were attentive and most friendly. Those on night duty on the first few nights when I was regularly in pain were extremely attentive and reassuring.
In term of quickly diagnosing and getting me back to sufficiently good health in order to be discharged, I am truly grateful for the skill and expertise of the staff.
