"Recent hospital admission"
Posted by Shir (as ),
I had a fall when on holiday in York in May. I cut my elbow and didn't think too much of it although it was sore.
On returning home on the Sunday my wound had worsened with my arm swelling. I went to my local nurse who advised me to go to Queen Margaret Hospital as the wound was infected. Upshot is I was admitted to the Victoria on the Monday night with an infection. I was in the hospital for 5 days.
The care I received was first class - the nurses, doctors etc. do a fantastic job. They work really hard. I was in ward 33 in the Vic - Ann, Andy, Ruth etc. can't remember all their names - they are amazing! !
My District Nurse has been dressing my wound for the past few weeks and it is now starting to heal. From start to finish I couldn't have asked for better care - I am really proud of the NHS. This is my first time in the hospital and they really looked after me.
