CCU Team, Scarborough Hospital
When a poorly patient was admitted in the early hours of 16 December the prognosis was not good and eventually she was put on the end of life pathway. The patient’s daughter has nominated the whole team from domestics up to the consultant for their support at an extremely difficult time for the family, especially as her mum was extremely agitated. “I have worked for the NHS for nearly 30 years and I’ve never seen the other side of the coin before. But I know we should be very, very proud of the staff in coronary care.
We will always be eternally grateful that what was probably the worst fortnight of our lives, particularly over Christmas, was made much easier by these kind caring angels.” The patient moved to a hospice on Christmas Eve and sadly died on Boxing Day
