"During my whole experience I was impressed with the services (Ipswich Hospital)"
Posted by Minckie (as ),
I recently experienced chest pains and sweating so I spoke to 13 health who then contacted the ambulance for me to talk to, they advised they would send paramedics who arrived in a very short time, after checks I was advised to allow transport to Ipswich Hospital.
On arrival at the hospital I was "ramped" not as seen on tv but I was inside the hospital with both paramedics in constant contact, wasn't an unpleasant experience. After a while I was moved into emergency where I was checked and tested by a number of staff in a considerate and careful manner, when a bed was available I was moved to the short stay ward around midnight.
I spent 2 nights in this ward with what I would say by professional and considerate staff. I was then moved to ward 7B, a very busy full ward where I spent the night and had more examinations and a stress test around mid day, I was discharged around 4-30.
During my whole experience I was impressed with the services offered, the courtesy and assistance provided by all staff from the start to the finish. I did not find fault with any service, perhaps more staff may improve the service as it seemed to me they were all over worked though they stayed positive.
I sincerely hope these comments will be passed to all departments I was involved with including the ambulance service with my very grateful thanks.
