"Good care for septic arthritis"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

During a very busy shift at work my knee began to swell dramatically and two days later I was admitted to East Surrey Hospital a&e at about 1pm.

By 8am the following morning I had an athroscopy to try and remove the infection, I was later admitted to Brook Ward where I was given I/v antibiotics.

Staying in Brook Ward was the best hospital stay I could have wished for the staff were fantastic as was the food! I was discharged 14 days later to receive I/v antibiotics at home
