"Care of the Dying"
About: Torbay Hospital Torbay Hospital Torquay TQ2 7AA
My mother passed away on Simpson Ward at Torbay Hospital after a brief illness. She had been admitted as an emergency on the Thursday following a fall due to increasing heart failure. Despite the best efforts of the medical and nursing staff her condition continued to deteriorate and she sadly left us on the Wednesday just 6 days later. I cannot speak too highly of the care and attention my Mum received from the Doctors and Nurses - despite the ward being very busy they always had time for her and for us as a family. She was kept very comfortable and treated with great compassion and her passing was very peaceful and dignified.
