I was admitted to the AAU at Larbert hospital about midnight one Tuesday in July with a case of rapid cellulitis following an insect bite.
The care I received in the assessment unit, the ward and the subsequent ward (31A) was excellent.
Although extremely busy, I observed the staff to be professional, efficient and compassionate. The care they took of the other patients - some challenging, some vulnerable was a credit to the medical profession. This applied to not only the medical staff, but also the care staff, housekeeping and other support staff.
Whist the system was quite obviously under some strain I observed only dedicated individuals striving to do the best they could.
