"Depression and Physical Health Problems. Admitted to B50"
Posted by Helrx9 (as ),
Depression has been a problem for my wife on and off, for about 18 months. In early September 2012 my wife became breathless on exertion, short walks were a problem.
By the end of September she required an emergency admission to B3 at the QMC in Nottingham and was transferred to the High Dependancy Unit being diagnosed with a Pulmonary Embolism. The problem began to resolve and her physical recovery began, however, depression became a major problem for her.
The decision was made to transfer her to B50 under the care of Dr P. The ward managed her physical medications and stabilized her blood warfarin levels while treating her depression. My wife enjoyed her stay, especially on B50 and has appreciated the tremendous skills and help provided.
The services she particularly liked included the Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist as well as the physical and mental health treatments provided by the staff.
