"lack of sleep and noise didn’t help my recovery"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I attended Rotherham Hospital in April for knee replacement. It was an experience I do not wish to repeat. Having come out of it with what I can only describe as a psychosis, brought on by my five nights in hospital! I cannot fault the nursing care and cleanliness of the ward but the lack of sleep and noise didn’t help my recovery. Perhaps the future plans for 2 person en-suite rooms will be more conducive to better outcomes.
