Accompanied the person I care for (wife)

I recently accompanied the person I care for (my wife) to hospital (Whiston) following a fall in the kitchen that caused superficial laceration of the scalp (occiput area), bleeding and contusion. The treatment given to my wife by both the ambulance paramedics and the hospital was most excellent, and she subsequently recovered uneventfully. The case needed to be dealt with as an emergency because she takes anticoagulant treatment (Warfarin) due to atrial fibrillation, and due to her age (86).
This follows earlier equally excellent treatment of my wife at Whiston Hospital in the first week in January 2020. She developed Community-Acquired Pneumonia with serious lung function impairment (SpO2 = 70%), requiring immediate oxygen therapy followed by intravenous Co-Amoxiclav and Clarithromycin. After 4 days in A&E and in two other wards, she was discharged and made a full recovery. Once again, the way the case was handled by the ambulance paramedics and by Whiston Hospital was most excellent. On this occasion, there was serious risk to her life if she had not been treated so quickly and so well.
