"A& E and aftercare"
Posted by Freddy Wallace
I would like to extend my upmost gratitude to the above . My wife Kathleen Wallace was rushed into the QE on the 29th October 2013 with a massive stroke and we were immediately seen by a doctor and a stroke nurse with the name in A& E, she was then taken for a CT scan and then had to have an operation to remove a clot in her neck. The operation took 3 hours and she was then transferred to a ward were she was looked after by a different nurse and the staff of ward 411 ( they have now moved i think to ward 514 ) who i have to say were excellent in their care. Kathleen was discharged on the 5th November 2013 and the ESD took over and i cannot speak too highly of them. A member of staff and her team looked after my wife in the form of Speech,Physio, Occupational, and more so they were very professional but at the same time in a sense became a part of the family. With their help my wife has come on great and now has got a lot of her confidence back,she still has a long way to go as she has lost the sight in her left eye and her memory is still affected but without the help and support of the above people i think we would be in a bad place now. I would appreciate it if you would pass our thanks on to all of the above and keep up the good work you are doing. Regards Fred Wallace
