"Exemplary Care after Hysterectomy- Brunel Ward"

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill) / Gynaecology

I had a hysterectomy on the 1st August,. From the time of admission to the ward through to recovery to my stay in the ward I felt my treatment was excellent. In recovery - I had some spasm pain and the nurses and doctors dealt with this immediately so that I was in minimal pain and provided me with a morphine pump so I would not be in pain on the ward. My two nurses that took care of me were wonderful - kind and caring and did everything to help my comfort. I have stayed in private hospital 2 years ago for a myomectomy and I can say that my surgery and care were actually better at Kings with nurses coming to my bed as soon as I pressed my buzzer. Also the lead consultant came to see me every morning at 8 pm so I felt really cared for. The room I stayed in was clean and comfortable with just one other bay beside me. I recommend this ward very highly. Thank you so much!
