"A&E - fast, efficient and caring"
About: Leicester Royal Infirmary Leicester Royal Infirmary Leicester LE1 5WW
Admitted on Sunday night, very scary experience especially with some of the levels of violence from patients (security being called numerous times) - the staff shouldn't have to put up with that!! As soon as I entered I went through very quickly - bloods, ecg, test etc... the doctor who examined me - kind, courteous and informative (even though the news wasn't the best!!). He even but the cannualar in the correct hand for the procedure I was about to have. the nurses were lovely , even getting me a drink as I was in shock and making sure I was ok whilst I waited for the ambulance to take me to another hospital for treatment. The staff must be under immense pressure with some patients being unreasonable and violent, but I am thankful and lucky I was treated quickly, effectively and with dignity.
