"The nurse helped me in an already anxious situation."

About: Croydon University Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

I called maternity triage as I was 19 weeks pregnant and feeling pain. I was told by a lovely polite lady to come down.

When I arrived I was looked after and the girl in question tried to hear babies heartbeat. We could not here it however this nurse was adamant she would find it. She spent quite a while trying to find the heartbeat in between doing a 1000 other things. Running around the very busy demanding department and yet she still had time to be kind, caring and compassionate.

I wish for the nurse in question to know how she helped me in an already anxious situation. She found the heartbeat and reassured me.
