My elderly mother had occasion to stay in hospital twice in the last 6 weeks. She broke her pubic bone and had 4 nights in hospital until she stabilised. Because she had dementia and was a fall risk there was a nurse in her room 24/7. Unbelievable. The standard of care was impeccable.
Unfortunately, the second visit was palliative care following a perforated bowel. Again she was in hospital for around 5 days until she passed away. The care was outstanding. The nurses went above and beyond to ensure the very best of care. They treated us, the family, with respect, empathy and understanding. Nothing was too difficult.
I can't speak highly enough of all of the overall treatment during such a harrowing time.
