"My mother's hospital stay."

About: St George Hospital

(as a relative),

My 90 year old mother was admitted to hospital with a pressure sore on her back and broken skin under her arm 7 weeks ago.   Today she finally comes home.   From the day she arrived she was treated with nothing but kindness.   The nurses on the ward were gentle and very sweet with her. They made her feel comfortable and cared for and that care was second to none.   From the doctors, who talked to me every second day to keep me updated  on her condition, to the Occupational Therapist who arranged the mattress she needed when she got home, the Social Worker who arranged home care for me  and the wonderful nurses who took such good care of her I would like to say a big "thank you".   Our family appreciates everything you did for her and the professionalism and kindness that was shown.
