"Very impressed"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

Anything else?

I had the misfortune to become an inpatient on Ward 17 in October 2012.

This was a ward I worked nights on back in the early 80's when it was classified as a Geriatric Acute Assessment ward.

I was amazed at the transformation of the whole ward & also the room I was allocated to which was previously the Bathrooms areas. It was bright & modern.

All the staff from cleaners to Nurses were wonderful. The meals were excellent & apart from fact I was there to recover, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was as good as being in a hotel.The only thing I missed was not having my own hot drink facilities.

One of my sisters' used to be a Senior Ward sister on this ward & I couldn't wait for her to vist so I could show how it had been modified.

Thank you to all of you

Thank you too the the Ambulance crew who took me in & the A & E Dept.

Note difficult to decide where to place this in the "Which Dept did you visit" soplacing it in A & E being asthis is where I started my journey.
