"Knee replacement"

About: King's Mill Hospital

My mother has just had her knee replacement at Kings Mill. The treatment and conditions were 2nd to none. The hospital is bright, clean and Mum said the food was excellent. My only observation was the length of time from being told Mum could go home to the time we got her drugs. Mum sat waiting from late morning till 6pm. I think that is unfair to Mum. We should have been told that she could go at 6pm, then that would have been less stress for her and as a family we could have collected her and not had to hang around as well watching Mum get stressed out. From what I can gather this is the norm, it must be very frustrating for the nurses as well. Thanks so much Kings Mill for taking such good care of my Mum and hope the administrators can take the above on board.
