I was admitted to Emergency after experiencing chest pain. I was worried about whether it was my heart or not. I felt like a burden to the hospital staff, but was reassured by everyone I had contact with that my concern was valid and I was made to feel welcome and supported during my time in the department. The staff were kind and professional and supportive, explained the care they provided at every step of the process, and provided pain relief in a timely manner as well as tending to my other needs without complaint. I could not speak more highly of the nurses and doctors who cared for me, the orderlies who took me for my tests and provided a hot cup of tea, the ward clerk who recorded my personal details and the radiographer who x-rayed my chest.
