"Tricky situation well dealt with by competant..."

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

I was admitted to the day ward at LRI on wednesday 12th june for what should be a routine hernia operation, however, due to my ongoing chronic illnesses this was in fact far from routine, anaesthetics are a problem due to my respiratory and coronary ailments but this was dealt with in a thoroughly professional manner by all concerned, from entering the ward to my subsequent transfer to ward 24 I was regularly comforted and advised about the procedure and assisted where and when required, I really can't thank all concerned enough at what could have been a traumatic time. I spent a couple of nights recuperating in ward 24 and the positive experience continued there, regular checks by friendly staff, and again, very good support when it was requested made my stay a pleasure. This was actually my second admission to LRI this year as in january I spent a few days in ward 22 recovering fron a C.O.P.D exacerbation, I was well looked after then too, having heard so many negative things about the hospital I can only say that my experiences leave me with no reason for complaint. Thank you one and all.
