Bernadette Alfonso, RN, Senior Staff Nurse

Gastro-intestinal Services T09 Ward
University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
United Kingdom
Apple was kind and compassionate and very professional.

During my quite lengthy stay in the hospital (5 weeks), my nurse, Apple (Bernadette), was completely and utterly an angel in disguise. I had been suffering from acute psychosis which made me unable to eat and had to be fed with a nasogastric tube. I was terribly sick at the beginning of my stay but improved slowly. Apple wasn't even a mental health nurse, yet she knew exactly how to treat me! She was kind and compassionate and very professional. She was always smiling and giving words of wisdom to me and making me feel happy even when I was sad. I think this is a unique case because this is about a physical health nurse treating a patient with mental health and physical health problems. I will always remember the care that I was given on this ward and by Apple. Thank you so much for everything.
