"Second to none care"

About: Ninewells Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had an unfortunate accident which resulted in a break to my left hip in December.

The care I received whilst in Ninewells Hospital wards 16 & 17 was second to none.

I was cared for with the utmost professionalism, compassion and dignity, due to this commitment from all nursing & physiotherapy staff over a two week period I am now well on the road to recovery from my injury.

Being in hospital over the festive season & not being able to enjoy the company of my family was emotional however I felt the staff ensured I was supported and were always there with kind, caring words, they themselves made Christmas a special time for all.

I myself am a nurse and felt so proud of my colleagues and their excellence within a very hard profession.

I will ensure that your feedback is shared with the staff in Wards 16 and 17 and I am sure they will be delighted to hear that you are now well on the road to recovery.
