"Staff on C20 Excellent Care"

About: Warrington Hospital

I was granted a bed on C20 (day ward) as the hospital was quite full my problem was actually surgical. The care I received was excellent praiseworthy in fact. I was treated with dignity and respect at all times by the staff nurses and auxiliary's. Particular mention to the Ward Manager and Senior Nursing staff. I am on a special diet and the staff ensured my needs were communicated to the kitchen's. There was no point at which I felt neglected in fact I felt completely safe in their care. When I requested pain relief (controlled drugs) it came quickly even though 2 staff were needed to meet my needs. The doctor's team were amazing taking time to explain why certain decisions were made sitting by my bedside ensuring I understood what was happening with my care and listening to my concerns. Another doctor was particularly helpful and compassionate. I felt I was treated as an individual with my health and social and emotional needs taken into consideration. The auxiliary's expressed concern about my diet and endeavoured to find me something I could eat. The ward was spotlessly clean and when people had to come in to clean my room my privacy was always respected. Thank You to everyone
