"Death of a Dearly Loved Twin Brother."

Posted by James Oldcorn
My twin brother was urgently admitted to Ward 7C following a fall at home suffering from a fractured hip, pneumonia & other serious issues.I live in the North & immediately travelled down to visit him with my sisters after being alerted by his children of his critical condition. We stayed for two days & throughout that time we were all impressed with the high standard of nursing care & attention he received together with the cleanliness of the ward & the courtesy & helpfulness of the staff. One nurse was particularly attentive professional & caring. I was pleased that his three children were allowed to maintain a vigil in our absence until he passed away 11 days later.They were kept updated constantly with his progress or lack of it.I am sure you will appreciate that there is a special & unique bond between twin brothers & we were particularly close despite the distance between us but I can safely say that despite the tremendous sadness & grief our experience at the John Radcliffe has been a reassuring one & has helped me to accept my loss knowing my brother died peacefully & in such good caring hands....
