"A Week spent on Ward 15"

About: Good Hope Hospital

After falling on October 7th I was taken by Ambulance to A&E at Good Hope. I then was admitted to Ward 15 then the next day had an operation to my leg and ankle to put plate and pins in. It is a nasty break. I then spent a week on ward 15. All the staff were excellent. They were all always very busy but I had good care and attention. I cannot fault them. I was having trouble dealing with the fact that I have a long recovery ahead of me and one HCA in particular helped me so much both physically and with coming to terms and dealing with my recovery. Thank you all.Julia Jones.
