"Dorchester Hospital excelled"

About: Dorset County Hospital

Anything else?

Couldn't have wished for better care, kindness and help whilst there. The staff are so nice even under pressure doing everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible, even the food was good! One little thing that bugged all the patients was the fact that we all asked to be called by our first names but on the board above our beds we had our marital status up and it felt very formal which made us feel a little uncomfortable, even though we were all ancient!! All in all the staff were great and there was one young lady, she was such a sweetie, always happy and smiling even though she was rushed off her feet. Hats off to all the staff as I know I couldn't do their job in a million years as I would murder some of the patients . The staff all had a brilliant sense of humour which must be hard for them with what they have to put up with.
