"Elizabeth Ward"

About: Watford General Hospital

Anything else?

Came out of hospital - Elizabeth Ward on Monday 11/03/2013 after operation for bladder prolapse on 08/03/2013. The care I had from all the nurses and staff was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for them although they were very overworked. Everything was done with a smile from the nurses. I was very nervous about having anethestic and would like to thank staff for being so lovely to me. I did a lot of wandering around in the night and a lot of crying as I was in pain but there was always a nurse there to reassure me and give me some painkillers!

Thanks again to you all xx
