Went in on Sunday night with expected appendicitis after visiting the doctors on Friday afternoon and being told to wait until the pain got worse. The pain gradually got worse and I attended A&E at 6pm on Sunday night. The nurses and doctors worked really well to ensure I had the right care although one did lose my notes in A&E. I had morphine in A&E then got sent to ward 8 in Balmoral.
I had a ultrasound scan and all the right pain relief on time. I was kept in for an extra night to make sure I was ok and the whole time the staff worked extra hard to make sure I was comfortable and that I was cared for in the correct way. The food was lovely and the doctors consultant and all the nurses ensured my stay was a pleasant one bringing me more medication and food throughout the night with a smile on their face. They worked well as a team and made sure everything was done as quickly as possible.
