"My third visit to the QE"
Posted by dubba70
My third visit to the QE in 12 months was very satisfying. The care and concern shown by the admission nurses was very, very nice as was the journey by chair that I had to take with a Porter. A very pleasant man and an interesting conversation. The anaesthetic room was my next port of call. The anaethetists, the nurses and the surgeons were all superb, their professionalism and concern in me, made me feel proud to live in Birmingham. The Recovery nurses as well as the ward staff led by the Ward Sister were a joy. I do not like going into Hospital, but if I have to, the QE would be where I would choose to go.
Well done the QE keep it up. The place was spotless and the food very acceptable. If I were to criticise in any way it would be the architects who would be at the receiving end of comments.
My bedroom was opposite the staff carpark, which was a joke, queueing for seemingly ages. Yet there is a piece of waste ground behind the bus shelter which would accomodate at least 20 cars. Whilst it is so nice to have so many green areas at a hospital, surely the staff well being and ease of car parking is of a greater priority. The staff gain the high ratings for your hospital, if they leave, because of difficulty parking, it would be self defeating.
Again, well done the QE and thank you for your care kindness consideration, shown to me, and above all the sheer professionalism from all the staff.
