"Amazing hospital!"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

My 8 year old son had an operation yesterday I can not express how happy we are with this hospital! The whole hospital is spotless and everyone is friendly and lovely to deal with!! We were on sunflower ward hospitals freak me out as they are full of germs this hospital is nothing like the others I have visited!! I have a baby I'm very fussy about putting her down however few hours in she wanted to play she ended up on the floor I got nervous but once I picked her up the white tights were still white!!! We watched nurses strip beds they wipe every part of it!! I wish we lived local so this was our hospital instead we are by Stafford :-( my son was looked after very well each doctor or nurse addressed him like an adult which made him feel safe he was nervous but on e there he calmed down! Kits have own tv no cards needed the amount of toys this hospital has is better than most youth clubs! I cannot express his clean they are and how I wish we could have derby as our local hospital! I cannot thank you enough excellent staff!
