As I am a new patient at NUH, I was not sure how treatments are done there and I am due for my Zometa infusion. The reception counter was quite empty, only another patient and myself; after taking my appointment card, I sat for about 10 minutes and was called into the treatment room. It is a very spacious and brightly lit room – comfortable lounge chairs with extendable leg rest. Zometa infusion is only half an hour but the nurses still took effort to make me feel comfortable and explained what to expect. The placing of the needle was not painful (I won’t say painless!), and no bruising after.
The first time experience at NUH is positive. I would say the nurses are friendly and polite. Thumbs up for NUH!
After the above pleasant activity, it was time for lunch and we decided somewhere nearby – Keppel Club. It is beautifully decorated for Christmas. There is humongous Christmas tree in the carpark. So much festivities during this season.
