What I liked
Throughout my stay at the Lister I can honestly say that I could not have asked for better care than what I and my baby daughter received.
I came into the hospital at 7 months pregnant with abdominal pain but was not in labour. My daughter was born through emergency C -section and during the same surgery I had my spleen removed as it had ruptured. I was bleeding internally and lost 5 litres of blood.
All of the doctors, nurses, surgeons, midwives and support workesr involved in our care were absolutely fantastic. If it wasn't for the swift and prompt action of the obstetric doctors and the vascular surgeon, I would not be here to see my baby girl grow up, she may not have been here either.
The after care we received was also brilliant. The staff I encountered in all units were very friendly, helpful and supportive. Nothing was too much trouble and I was given excellent care, even when they were very busy and short staffed
The neo natal unit is an absolutrly wonderful place. All the staff are friendly and supportive and we were encouraged to be as involved with our little girl as much as we could. We were kept very well informed of her care and the staff were always happy to answer questions and help and support you with any of the care we needed to give.
I want to thank everyone once again for all they did for us. We had a really positive experience during our time there and our aftercare has also been great.
What could be improved
The food. I understand there is a lot of people to cater for and hospital food is notoriously poor, but better quality or fresher food would be most welcome
