"Care for mother in stroke word"

About: Dorset County Hospital

My mother was rushed to hospital with a stroke and was taken to the Stroke Unit at Dorset County Hospital. The staff were professional, kind, patient and hugely organised. The wards were clean, and my mother, and all the family who visited were impressed both by the level of care and support she received, and by the exemplary staff from doctors, and nurses, occupational therapy, mental health specialists, through to the orderlies. High praise to all of them for such a well managed department with such great care and attention. My mum is now recovering well.
