"My husbands hospital stay"

About: Ninewells Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as a relative),

My husband was in for emergency surgery to his right knee to clear out an infection and replaced the plastic (he already had a total knee replacement a few years ago).

The NHS Staff in Ward 17 where he went to first were excellent then he was called back on the for emergency surgery. The staff in Ward 19 were excellent, couldn't have been nicer.

My husband was in for approximately 10 days and doesn't have a bad word to say about any of them. Emma was exceptionally nice.

Dear “Wenders”

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback on Patient Opinion. I am delighted to hear of the excellent care your husband received in both Ward 17 and Ward 19. I will ensure your comments are shared with the staff and, in particular, Emma.

I hope your husband is recovering well from his surgery.

Kind regards.

Thank you Alison, glad this will be passed on to Emma and all the other staff too. My husband is doing really well, getting stronger every day.
