"wonderful care provided by Crosshouse"

It had already been established via Xrays, and by the Surgeon that it was likely that I needed a total shoulder replacement. I had an intensive pre-operative assessment which took place in the same hospital area and on the same day. Each specialist had their own input without me having to move departments. I have restricted mobility so this helped tremendously.
One nurse took, my temperature, pulse, respirations and blood pressure. Another carried out an electrocardiograph (E. C. G. ) A specialist nurse checked the laboratory reports and that my urinalysis was clear of organisms like E Coli. The Physiotherapist checked and measured my capacity for various movements. The Pharmacist checked my medication, then I met the Surgeon so that could raise any questions and get reassurance.
