"Great Care In Theatre Recovery"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

I returned from theatre to the recovery unit after my hernia repair expecting to be back on a ward and home by the evening. However, I became quite poorly with breathing difficulties. This was a very frightening experience! The nurses and anaesthetic team were excellent in their care and support towards me. They monitored my condition and gave me rapid treatment to ease my respiratory distress. They talked to me throughout offering reassurance and constant care.They also made sure my husband was well informed why I had to remain in recovery longer than usual. I cannot thank them enough for the wonderful care that I received. THANKS
