"Ward 27 Pre Op and Post Op Care"
Posted by Jo Jukes
I was unfortunate enough to be ill recently, something I found quite hard to deal with as I am somewhat of a Doctor phobic and I have never been in Hospital, other than to have children! I was referred to Hospital by my G.P and was admitted into Ward 27. I was quite ill at first but they stabilised me and I was operated on for a Gastro-Colonic Fistula on the 26th October. While I was in Ward 27, all of the Staff treated me very well, with respect and in a friendly and caring manner. The night time staff were especially attentive and made my stay in Hospital bearable! I cannot fault any of the staff in their care and the way in which they deal with patients, even when they are short staffed and stressed. Unfortunately, I was discharged a week ago with an infection in my scar and since this-my scar has opened up. However, I am under the care of the District Nurse and I get it packed, dressed and cleaned every day. Recovery is a long way ahead but it just goes to prove you should never take your health for granted!
