"My mothers palliative care"

About: University Hospital Wishaw / Geriatric Assessment

(as a relative),

When mum was admitted to hospital it was evident how frail she was. Staff on the Emergency Care Ward were quick to assess her needs and as she approached the end of life showed care and compassion to her and the family.

I found their reassurance of comfort measures knowledgeable and reassuring. Although busy they took time to say that they would try and not move mum to another ward and provided a single room in a quiet area.

I will be forever grateful to let me know that she died with people who cared.

Thank you.
