"My recent time spent in hospital."

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

Anything else?

I have recently had a knee operation in RDE hospital and I feel I must take this opportunity to say how good and pleasant a stay it was. I was in over the Easter holidays on Dyball Ward and I couldn't fault the staff at all. Right from the start we were all made to feel comfortable and our visitors were given a little extra visiting time, which it being the holidays was much appreciated. Everyone of the staff without expectation was friendly. The ward was kept clean and tidy at all times. The nurses were attentive and made you feel nothing was too much trouble. My only criticism would be the bottom sheet on my bed,it was for ever sliding down, the nurses then having to keep returning to the bed to pull the said sheet back up. A solution to this would be simple,have a fitted sheet on the mattress.
