My 96 year old father went into the QE11 in early December 2012 having had a fall. He was subsequent transferred to Codicote Ward where for various reasons he remained until late January, before moving on to a nursing home. Dad is blind and although mentally in pretty good shape did; understandably, get confused with the various comings and goings in the ward. The nursing care he received throughout that time was exemplary. Dad was effectively bed bound and needed a high level of care. He was treated with dignity and respect. We were impressed that both doctors and nursing staff took the time to explain to him what was going on and had the patience to listen to Dad’s comments and thoughts. When we visited or phoned we were able to receive a clear brief on how Dad was progressing.
