"Excellent care on children's ward"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

Whilst my son (20 months) has been receiving care for septic arthritis & then osteomyelitis the staff have been nothing short of excellent. Not only has my son been looked after but as a mom I have to. This is especially important as it has helped me to be the best mom I can be in very worrying circumstances. All staff members have been professional and honest and I have had nothing but faith in any treatment he has received. I have felt at all times that my son is the main focus, and staff have gone out of their way to help and support us. I have always known what the plan is, what's happening next & felt fully in the picture of my sons care. I cannot thank the staff enough for all they have done. A very dedicated team who go above & beyond. I have also had excellent care from the orthapedic team that have been quick to diagnose & treat my little boy. Both teams have worked well together. Thank you to all involved.
