"This is what nursing is about"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

I attended A/E DEPT last night via ambulance after suffering a very survive asthma atack. I was taken In to the department in the early hours of Sunday morning I was very fast assignend a cubical I had my observations including O2 sats and heart rate being very high, the sister who was looking after me Imedatly asked a doctor to review me, the doctor checked me over lsitened to my chest prescribed the nesasery nebulisers to help my breathing. Due to my condition the nebulisers didn't do the job the doctor must have come in to see my around 20 times thought my time in A/E. the doctor then went to canulate me and take bloods also sorted out my pain and asked the sister to put up fluids witch happend with in a few moments also I went for a chest X-ray very quickly I was then given some iv drugs that I needed to help me, o started to feel better straight away. I can't thank the team more they where excellent, their shift was extremely busy. I hope this gets back to them I can't comend the team any more they where just amazing also I may add the porter that took me for my X-ray was lovely so caring and polite to me. The dept was the cleanest hospital dept I have ever seen I could go on and on about this fantastic team 100% fantastic nurses/doctors makes me so proud of our beautiful NHS. Keep up the hard work you amazing people
