Posted by Hip hip hippy (as ),
I am writing this because I get upset that people only say something when they want to complain but I like to say things that deserve to be praised.
I had a total hip replacement and I can only say from my outpatients to my discharge from ward 9 I have nothing but praise for this hospital my care was second to none.
It is not easy to go through major surgery lightly without being afraid I have never had an operation for 50 years, so I don't have a lot to compare with which maybe a good thing as all I have for this hospital is praise from the cleaners to the consultants I was treated very well.
The nursing staff, the phisios, the doctors all work together to take care of patients and understand that you are away from home and family and they all know what their job is and appreciate that all the different departments do their job to the best of there ability
The food from your kitchens was very nice and I am a very fussy eater but all I can say to your kitchen is well done and thank you
May I take this opportunity to thank all the orthopedic departments at your hospital as they are totally wonderful and I am nearly 4 week's post op and I cannot believe I have no pain to speak off also the xray department and the poor trolley men who get us safely to xray and back in such a busy hospital
Thank you again to everyone and if anyone is going in to ortheopedics for an operation you have nothing to fear they will take excellent care of you thanks again
