About: Broomfield Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i had been horse riding and my horse threw me off. luckily i landed on my arm, not my head , neck or back. the pain was agony. i sat in the waiting room for 30 mins and was then called up by a nurse and hd x-rays. they revealed that my bone just above my elbow was broken. all of the nurses were really nice, and the doctors were ok. i had plaster put on my arm and then went to the childrens ward. the food was really nice as were the nurses. i slept there . in the morning i had my plaster redone then more x-rays. the bone doctors said i was fine to go home.

What could be improved

i couldnt sleep at all- should be quieter.

they said i could not travel - so annoyed as my holiday had to be cancelled.

waiting time was very long.

Anything else?

ok, but could have been better.
