"Aspects at Deeside Hospital"

About: Deeside Community Hospital Deeside Community Hospital / Rehabilitation

(as a relative),

My father has been in Deeside Hospital for about two months following a traffic accident - although I don't think I have ever been given a diagnosis, the medical staff have not disagreed when I refer to it as a case of traumatic brain injury. It is such a lovely hospital that my father, in his confusion, usually thinks he is on a cruise ship. He has been on some fine cruises, so that's a compliment.

The staff are usually wonderful; they smile, try to answer my questions and made Christmas as good as possible in the circumstances. It would be good if there were enough staff so that I would not be taking home urine soaked laundry - evidence not of incontinence, but perhaps of staff shortage.
