"i had a knee operation on 31st ..."

About: Furness General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i had a knee operation on 31st july and was sent back for two weeks as i had a lot of complications and infections, and had to go in for a second op. The nruses were all brilliant together and treat me excellently, they were really nice, and although some treatment was really painful they amde sure to try and keep me smiling.

What could be improved

Not much really, although my stay was long and painful the nurses really helped to cheer me up

Anything else?

i was also a visitor at furness general in januar 2009, as my grandad was taken in after having a stroke. Sadly he passed away on the 9th January, but the staff were all so caring for my family and my grandad throughout his whole stay.
