"A&E"

About: Derriford Hospital

Went to A&E with arm injury at the end of Octobber 2013. Signs displaying at least an hour's wait, wsas seen by triage nrse within 15 minutes, was thereafter x-rayed and diagnosed fairly speedily. Given painkillers and a dose of eramorph (?) which caused an allergic reaction. I passed out and again the 'system addressed the issue quickly. Was eventually provided with sling and advice on physio to manage a triple break at the humerous and follow up appointments made. I was very impressed with the nursing and other department gteams.
