What I liked
I was an 'in patient' April along with monthly visits to the renal department for on-going issues. In April I received a cat scan and since then the hospital has worked on the results of this scan. On the 5th August 2011 due the scan results I was admitted into Ambulatory care as a 'day patient' to have x two Lympth Nodes/Glands removed from my left arm pit area. The attention to detail from Nurses and Doctors alike was of very high standards and I am very pleased with the care I received. The Nurses checked on my well being very regularly, before and after surgery. I was seen by the surgeon in good time before the operation and I also was seen by the anaethitist whom went through my past history very carefully and any anxiety I had regarding being put to sleep was soon lightened. Further more my partner whom was with me for the day actually 'passed out' from heat, as it was a very hot day and also lack of food from worrying about me. When she passed out within 5 seconds the ward nurse was attending to her, within 30 seconds 12 - 15 nurses and doctors was attending to her, feeding her oxygen and placed her on a hospital bed. She was then wheeled down to A&E by the porter and was escorted by a Nurse.
I have to say the hospital runs from an outsiders point of view as 'second to none' and I would applaud it 10 out of 10 to nurses and doctors and other staff alike such as porters, secretaries, patient and visitor directioner's, catering staff and any other staff whom I have had the pleasure to speak with.
This statement is wrote from my experiences of dealing with Queen Elizabeth New & Old Hospital for the past 18 months to date.
Carry on the great work you guys do and all this leaves me now is to say a huge thank you to all
