Moorgate Road, Rotherham, South Yorkshire, England, S60 2UD
Fell and broke my hip in a local restaurant. I couldn't move and was in terrible pain. Ambulance arrived within minutes. Pain relief given and taken to Rotherham Hospital. Ambulance staff, kind, considerate, professional and very reassuring. Taken to A & E. staff there were again wonderful. Not much of a wait. Doctor was quick to diagnose and give me a probable outcome of treatment and longer term prognosis. X rays done and pain block administered. Nursing and health care staff kept me positive. Admitted to ward about 1:30am. Total hip replacement done at 1:30pm, under a spinal anaesthetic. I was awake the whole time. I was terrified, (I am a worrier) but for no reason. Massive thanks to the theatre staff. The anaesthetist explained everything and reassured me the whole way through. The nursing staff, who actually made me laugh a some point, and as well as being totally professional managed to keep me distracted. I felt nothing at all during the procedure, dozed off to sleep for a while, and it all passed very quickly. The surgeons have done a truly amazing job. I am home and walking round the house and up and down stairs without crutches only 10 days after the op. Back on the wards I cannot praise enough the team that cared for me until I was discharged. Extremely professional, extremely kind and patient beyond belief. We could all learn a lot from them. Finally a special thank you to the ward clerk who went out of her way to make sure all my paperwork was done so that I could sort out insurances, Westfield and stuff when I got home. Rotherham Hospital you are simply the best. God bless you and God please bless our NHS.
Attended for a colposcopy examination recently. The nurse colposcopist was lovely, explained everything in detail before the examination and also during. Explained straight away what she could see which immediately put my mind at ease. The nurses also in attendance were friendly and chatty. Great care!
