My elderly dad has been admitted to Monklands on several occasions over the past 4 months. Each time he has received his initial care from the paramedics and I feel that this service is grossly overlooked when it comes to praise.
Each paramedic crew - mainly from Coatbridge base but the last admission was a crew from Cumbernauld - have displayed a professionalism which has been exemplary. They all have reassured my dad and me and provided excellent care at all times. On admission to hospital, they explained everything which was happening and continued to be a great help and calming influence.
As the paramedics are the first on the scene of any incident, they assess, attend and reassure the patient and family and sadly they do not get the praise they deserve. I know I can't speak for everyone, but I am sure most families are so grateful but are so concerned about their loved ones that they forget to thank the paramedics. I wish to extend my huge thanks to all the paramedics and commend them for the fantastic job they do every single day.
