"Noisy ward but good nursing care at Rotherham General"

The best thing about the way I was treated for a total left hip replacement (due to an accident) was the nursing care on ward B3 and being offered choice of an anaesthetic i.e general or local (epidural), I chose the second and had no nausea or other side effects post-op.
However I was disappointed I had to wait 58 hours in agony for an operation, the ward also had noisy ward staff during the first part of the nights, they were coughing and chatting at the ward desk just outside bay 1. I also had to wait 7 hours for medication from the pharmacy after I was told I was discharged.
I would like to thank all of the staff on ward 3 (except for the few mentioned above) and the operating theatre staff, anaesthetists and the porters.
