"Amazing Sister"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I had a short stay in MEAU at Lincoln Hospital on Friday night and although I was extremely emotional, scared and tired one nurse in particular made sure she constantly checked on me - even though she was rushed off her feet. She really really made such a difference to the way I was feeling and I can't put in to words how much that means to me.

Thank you Michelle for everything you did for me, I can't thank you enough.

Dear Tink1989,

Thank you for sharing such positive comments about your recent stay on MEAU.

It is reassuring to know that staff can make such a difference to a patient’s stay.

I will certainly pass on these comments to Michelle and to the team as a whole.

Kindest regards

Wendy Rojas, Sister MEAU
