What I liked
I was admitted as an emergency case on the same day last year 16th April 2009. I was suffering from abdominal pains caused by my stoma not functioning. I quickly deteriorated whilst on ward 14 and the staff had to act quickly as my bowel had twisted and become necrotic. My score went from a level of 6 to level 9 in a matter of minutes and I was close to passing away. The staff were marvellous I had to have two operations to remove furthe bowel on consecutive nights , I remained in intensive care ITU ward for four weeks most on a ventilator. I was then moved to ward 14 where I was looked after till I was discharged on 5th June. Throughout my 50 night stay I was looked after so well by all the staff from the cleaners to the consultant who brought me back to life . I will always be indebted to the wonderful staff.
What could be improved
Everything was perfect
