"Pacemaker/Coronary Care Unit"
About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary Royal Albert Edward Infirmary Wigan WN1 2NN
Saw the consultant in clinic in the early morning, fitted with pacemaker in the afternoon of the same day. Received excellent care from all staff at every level, cleanliness was evident and well maintained, and every effort was made to preserve dignity and privacy of myself and other patients. There was no difficulty at all in securing the attention of staff if there was a need, care was provided but was not obtrusive. My only problem was the (dimmed) lights being too bright interfering with my sleep for the one night I was there, barely slept. Meals were fine, hot and well made in my opinion albeit choice was necessarily limited. Drinks were offered/provided at regular intervals. I would not hesitate to recommend this unit to anyone else in need of such treatment. Only real criticism- before I was discharged a male patient was admitted while a female patient beside myself was in the bay concerned and presumably remaining there!
