"Views of an in-patient"

About: Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

The only complaint I really have about my stay, which was about ten days, was that at times the staff were not readily available if their assistance was required.

This is certainly not a complaint about the staff on the ward but at times, most notably in the morning, it was obvious that more staff were required.

Apart from this I found the staff were very helpful and answered any queries I had about my treatment, were courteous and preserved my dignity as much as was possible under the circumstances.

The food was very good and in just the right amount.

Pain management was very good.

Overall this was the best hospital I have been in, and I've been in a few.

p.s. the occasional egg for breakfast would have been nice
