The best thing about my treatment for a Hernia at Rotherham was the care and attitude of the staff. The respect given to me on ward B5 was immense as there was a continual need to examine my private area. Additionally the consultant and his staff were willing to give time to discuss concerns.
I was angry that just before leaving for home with a catheter I was told by a young woman that it must stay in for 2-3 weeks but the staff nurse said 2-3 days. This was sorted very efficiently by duty staff, in consultation with a doctor, three days of water were emptied. However the young woman completely rubbished the staff nurse. This young women's superiority was demeaning- perhaps she has a problem with those who no longer are in their first flush of youth. I felt she shouldn't have spoken about a colleague in such an abusive way.
All departments should be congratulated. Bill on A5 made me very comfortable and his jovial approach lifted the anxiousness for me and my wife.
