"Hospital Admission"

About: Ayr Hospital / Combined Assessment Unit (CAU)

(as a service user),

I was admitted to CAU with a severe kidney infection. Staff went out of their way to ensure I was comfortable, supported and that my needs were met. The majority of staff provided a high standard of care throughout my admission and communicated with me clearly regarding my care and treatment. The treatment I received was efficient and staff used a person-centred approach to care delivery. The staff's positive attitude made my time in hospital more pleasant and I believe I received excellent, very high standard care.

During my admission, one nurse did appear to have a poor attitude however this did not effect my opinion of any other staff members and I could not fault any other staff members.

Dear CAUPatient,

Ouch, I bet that was sore.

Thank you for taking time to share this, in the main, lovely post. I am sorry you feel that one of the staff poor attitude but I am glad you that was not the case with the rest of the staff and that you were treated you well with all your needs met. I will pass this to the team and management in CAU at Ayr hospital. I am sure it will be very well received.

I hope you are fully recovered now,

Best wishes,
