Topic: Tauirioterangi Gerry Pouwhare, Patient, 2014

Topic type:

 I arrived at the Emergency Department when I had an irregular heart beat and my blood pressure was really low. I was taken up to the Kaupapa Ward and they welcomed me in Te Reo Māori. That was nice and very different. They have been monitoring me mainly but I did have a visit from the chaplain and the social worker who just popped in to say hi and to see if I needed anything. They have made me feel very welcome here and my visitors too. I had quite a few of them recently and they needed a very long seat which was brought in for them.
