"My husband's treatment at Queen's Medical Centre"
Posted by lion863 (as ),
A positive experience of care even though outcome not. Took husband to A&E when he drove car into hedge and could not remember why and what happened. A&E responded well, lots of tests but no conclusion. Transferred to assessment ward B3 - numerous tests no real answers but very well cared for. Did need to push for info but they responded.
He recovered well but because no diagnosis kept him in and 5 days later at 9pm transferred him to orthopaedic ward until bed available on neurology. (Did that contribute to what happened?)
3am he had a massive brain stem stroke, was transferred to ICU and died two days later. Care there was amazing and staff brilliant and so caring. I don't blame anyone but I am sad I didn't know why such a healthy man (59) should have suffered this and no one saw it coming.
