"every member of staff, from the tea ladies to the doctors was extremely efficient and kind"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I was admitted to Rotherham District General Hospital at the start of April. I'd fallen down the stairs and ended up with 7 fractured ribs, stitches to my head and a lot of bruising. The first few hours are a complete blank to me. The X ray, the MRI scan, the stitching. When I came round in my bed in the ward, all I can say is that every member of staff, from the tea ladies to the doctors were extremely efficient and kind, except for just a couple of people who I didn't find to be very nice. You get that in any walk of life, so 2 out of about 50 people isn't so bad is it?

I admire them all for their dedication.

They did all seem worried about their jobs though.
