"Never been treated so well."

About: Furness General Hospital

Anything else?

I was admitted into this hospital after being domestically abused by my ex boyfriend and suffering a broken leg. This was on 26 April 2013 and I am still here. I was visiting the area for a few days when this happened therefore I'm away from home, which is in Manchester. I am 25 years old, the youngest on the ward and have never been admitted into hospital before. But I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt that I feel safer than I've ever felt and they've comforted me in ways that they aren't even trained to. The staff are extremely kind, considerate and helpful beyond belief. I had my operation last night and onbe nurse in particular made me feel very comfortable. I would like to thank every single member of staff I've had contact with because without your comfort, this would have been a much more unpleasant experience. I will also be sending a thank you card to the ward I stayed on, thanking all the staff individually.
