"Outstanding nursing care for elderly man"

About: Basildon University Hospital

My 88 year old father was admitted to A and E having suffered a fall and with a UTI. He was seen first by a nursing practitioner who was thorough and who treated my dad with great dignity and respect. The nurse who then escorted Dad to X ray and took his samples / observations was equally as caring and compassionate. Despite my Dad being in a lot of pain and at times being quite confused, all the nursing staff involved showed immense patience, respect and care despite being very busy. Finally the sister who arranged his discharge was efficient, approachable and helpful. As a family we would like to thank all the nurses in the department for making our trip to the department such a positive experience.
