Almost 4 weeks ago now I came into A and E at around 8pm on Thursday evening, I had flicked a tray full of hot fat up onto my neck and down my chest. I went into the shower at home and was brought down by my husband as I was in a bad way.
The way I was treated from the receptionist to the triage nurse to a sister was brilliant. I was seen immediately and put into another cold shower.
Vaseline gauze dressings were applied- and changed daily for a few days and brought comfort. They recommended using bio-oil, and when the nurse in petworth surgery saw to my needs, they concurred with that.
Sadly some of the blisters became infected and I had a course of anti biotics, which helped tremendously.
The care I received that night was superb! Please please thank them for their prompt actions their advice,, and their care over me. I will never forget it! I am now healing well, though feel there may be some scarring. It could have been worse!! My grateful thanks. Viv Cresswell
