"Care for our elderley mother on Kings D Female"

About: William Harvey Hospital / Older people's healthcare

Our elderly (96 years of age) mother suffered a fractured hip and was brought into William Harvey in an extremely poor way. Her stay was from 19/08/16 to 7/09/16. All Nursing and Support Staff were always kind/ efficient/ friendly and helpful, to both our mother and us as relatives/ visitors. Within the time of her stay she improved immensely and was subsequently able to return to her Care Home, in a very much improved condition. Thanks to everyone concerned for your sterling efforts!

Response from William Harvey Hospital

Thank you very much for your kind comments about the ward staff at the William Harvey Hospital.

I am so pleased to hear that they looked after your mother so well and that she was able to return in a much better state to her Care Home.

Families are often anxious and worried about their relatives - understandably so - and it is good to hear that the staff looked after you too.
