"Couldn't have been better."

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

My 100 year old mothe in law was admitted to Ward 90 with a broken hip following a fall. She was given a partial hip replacement, but sadly died a day after the operation. My wife and I cannot speak too highly of the care and kindness which both we and my mother in law received. We were kept fully informed at every stage, from the initial warning that there was no certain survival rate for this operation with extremely elderly people, to the sensitively-handled phone call about the death. A phone call suggesting that we should visit when mother in law was coming round from the anaesthetic following her operation, and giving an approximate time, was typical of the sensitive thoughtfulness. Our warmest thanks to all the staff of Ward 90.
