"Excellent care following torn knee ligament"

About: Shire Hill Intermediate Care Unit

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

This story has been posted by Healthwatch Tameside on behalf of a member of the public who asked not to have their name published. They said…

84 year old lady who tore a knee ligament whilst on holiday in the Lake District, was sent to Shire Hill on her return as she couldn’t manage in her home alone. Received extremely good care from physios, who made sure she was mobile before discharging her. At home had a bath aid fitted, and a key system on her front door.

She has made a very good recovery and is now fully active and able to drive, which is extremely important to her, as it gives her independence.
