"Severe break to arm, Easter Monday 2016"

About: Sittingbourne Memorial Hospital

On Easter Monday I came into the hospital in extreme pain from breaking my arm in 3 places, both the Ulna and Radius were completely snapped.

I was seen by a nurse who I cannot speak highly enough on the way the nurse handled my situation.

The nurse was extremely professional, caring and with their obvious natural talent for nursing made it easy for me to deal with the situation I suddenly found myself in.

My pain was taken care of, I was in x-ray efficiently and the nurse contacted Medway Hospital orthopaedics to review my x-rays and as a result I was operated on that afternoon.

I think as a hospital you are lucky to have the nurse as part of your team.
