My mum had an accident and was admitted to ward 61 in the GRI. Within a week my mum developed pnumonia And nothing could be done for her. She was moved into a private room and all my family (12 of us) were given constant access to the relatives room. We weren't made to feel in the way at all. My mum survived 4 days and within that period she was given excellent care by the pallative care team and also the nurses. The nursing staff made what was an awful time in our lives a comfortable one. To name a few nurses E Watson, E Kirkwood, L McAuley, R Sneddon and M Allan were wonderful. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I also have to mention Gareth on ward 61 who is a shining star. Every day he provided the family with tea, coffee and even biscuits and nothing was ever a bother for him. My 86 year old father gained comfort from the care my mum received from all staff, nurses and doctors.
