"Septic shock"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

Anything else?

After being referred from Bishop Aukland Walk in Centre, (also excellent care given here) I was taken to A&E with septic shock, Whilst I do not remember the treatments given to me at the time I am told by my wife (Also a Nurse) that the staf were 100% on the ball and treatment given was second to non. Admitted to ward 31 where I spent 7 days, also excellent care here. We are all so quick to complain these days but credit given where credit is due. To the medical staff, nurses, HCAs, domestics, porters and paharmacy staff I say a big Thank You.
