"The care throughout my time was excellent"

About: Perth Royal Infirmary / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had an accident and tore my Quadriceps tendon from my knee. Within 24 hours of my arrival at Perth Royal Infirmary I had an X-Ray, ultrasound scan and a MRI scan, and was scheduled for an operation very shortly afterwards. The care throughout my time was excellent, particularly from the wonderful nursing staff on Ward 7 who had a great attitude. One staff member had a poor attitude but they were the exception. I returned home yesterday and now have around 3 months in a full leg brace.

In summary this experience has been speedy, caring and I hope successful ....
