"Miscarriage care on christmas day "

About: University Hospital (Coventry) / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

Yesterday (Christmas day) I was rushed to University Hospital Coventry E. P. A. U.

I had awful cramps and bleeding. I collapsed once on the way there and then again when I got to the booking in reception, the staff over seeing my care were fantastic I had a lovely nurse and Doctor who treated me with great care, consideration and with the utmost respect. I was examined and told I was miscarrying, I suspected I was as this has been my third. I was given oxygen, I. V fluids and pain relief and made comfortable. I was later discharged that evening, only when I was ready and of course, I was urged that if I felt ill again to come back in.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff overseeing my care, you are all a credit to your team and University Hospital.

And to the nurse that held my hand when I was in agony - thank you from the bottom of my heart.
