"Ward 53 Stroke Team"

About: King's Mill Hospital

Anything else?

Having just experienced the faultless care provided by this hospital I cannot praise it enough. From the moment my frail mom (who only last year had a triple heart by pass following a heart attack) was admitted to A&E with a stroke to the day she left - everyone was polite, dignified, courteous and informative - and I have never had such an uplifting experience from a hospital. Luckily my mom was admitted and treated extremely quickly after the initial stroke and was fortunate to be given thrombolysis immediately - which has had a massive impact on her miraculous recovery. From being completely paralysed down her right side and unable to move or speak - within 24 hours she regained full movement and speech and was able to walk to the loo. Having been in hospital only 3 days she is now having an early discharge with ongoing care from the Occupational and Speech Therapist at home. Visually you would not know mom had had a stroke. But her recognition and memory recall of words and items along with the blurred sight in one eye are all that seem to remain. I couldn't recommend this hospital, especially all the team on ward 53 involved in moms care, highly enough. They have informed all the family (including grandchildren) of what has happened and what the next course of action was going to be completely throughout her treatment. and encouraged us all to ask any questions we needed to know. We never felt rushed or in the way or an inconvenience. Well done Ward 53 you are a credit to the NHS and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
