Bushey woman praises Christmas staff at Watford General Hospital
A woman from Bushey has praised medical staff, after her husband was rushed to Watford General Hospital on Boxing Day.
Bertram Davis, 89, was having difficulty breathing on Christmas Eve. After calling an ambulance, his wife Marie opted to keep him at home.
The 80-year-old, who owned Chef’s Corner in The Parade before it became Yates, said: "On Christmas day we called an ambulance again but we decided to stay at home.
"On Boxing Day he had to have dialysis and they discovered he had a chest infection, and fluid had spread around his heart.
"He was taken into the resuscitation ward and everyone was so kind and amazing, despite it being so busy. While we were there eight people came in at the same time."
After treatment Mr Davis was eventually allowed to come home from hospital yesterday.
Mrs Davis said: "I haven’t got enough praise for the people who worked in the hospital over Christmas."
