"Efficient treatment and kind staff"

About: Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital / Cardiology University Hospital Aintree / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I was a patient in July 09 in the Heart assessment unit (HAC) in Fazakerly Hospital. Then I was transferred to the Heart & Chest Hospital (Broadgreen). Although I was worried about the prognosis and scared I needn’t have been, the treatments at both these hospitals were very efficient and staff were kind. My one and only concern when in hospital is infection and I think a lot of this problem is caused by staff, be it medical or domestic using public transport, walking doing their shopping and smoking outside the hospitals with their uniforms on. I have always had this fear of infection because my husband died of MRSA a few years back, which was caught in hospital. Could you not go back to the days when staff changed their uniforms before going out in the public sector.
