"I was in critical care for 2 weeks, ..."

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was in critical care for 2 weeks, the little I do remember was the staff being caring, compassionate and made me feel like I was the only one there. Thankyou to all the staff on this ward.

I was then transfered to Rookwood A ward for a further 2 weeks, the caring and the compassion did not change, but some nurses was better than others. One nurse was exeptional, there are not many people I would trust to remove my caphiter, but the nurse did it with no pain at all, thanks.

A brilliant ward to be on, thanks to ALL the staff.

What could be improved

Nothing I can think of.
