"A&E, Emergency Assessment Unit & Emergency Short Stay"
Posted by Snooks (as ),
I am diabetic and after struggling to get my blood sugars up my Husband took me to A&E. I was seen within 5 minutes of being 'checked in'
Within minutes of me seeing the nurse I was sick and had awful tummy pains. I was taken to a private room. Pretty soon after the D&V became much more severe. I was put on a drip and heart monitor etc and move to a the EAU.
Although the first couple of nights were terribly noisy and I was being woken every hour for tests and obs, the care I received was brilliant. I couldn't fault any of the staff. I was treated with dignity and kindness.
My husband was unable to come and visit me on the first day so I was all alone. The nurses were lovely and always asked if there was anything they could get me or do for me as I was unable to get up and about. Nothing was too much trouble.
