"my fathers stay on c1/renal unit"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

My dad was recently(May 2015) in on C1 and had home leave via renal unit His care was excellent from ward manager,lead nurse ,staff nurses ,physio,OT,CSW,Students,housekeepers and Drs He was very frail and his mobility needs varied during his stay .At one time he became confused and disorientatedand the team responded quickly to his changing needs.He was treated with respect and dignity . The team also tolerated our constant stream of questions /interuptions and helped us greatly with his discharge plans I am happy to report although not "out of the woods" is much better at home and improving Thank you to the whole team who were involved
