"Chicken bone stuck in my throat"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

I had swallowed a chicken bone and the next day realised how serious this was and drove myself to A/E at 6am. My details were taken and was admitted to Ward S12. I am a fit and healthy elderly lady but I was very concerned about my condition. However from the start I was treated with respect and kept informed about what was going to be done and why, I have to say I am very impressed with the professionalism of all the staff - without exception, and very grateful for all the kindness I received during my stay.
