With reference to your recent article in the Chad regarding King’s Mill Hospital, I would like to add my comments after a recent stay there.
After a fall in the Four Seasons shopping centre in Mansfield, causing me to fracture my femur, I was taken by ambulance where they gave me morphine for my pain en route to the hospital.
On arriving at A&E, which was very busy, I was made comfortable by the staff until I had my x-ray confirming my fracture. I was given pain relief until I was admitted to the ward where I was offered a drink and something to eat by the very caring and sympathetic nurses.
I was operated on the next day after being seen by the anaesthetist.
I cannot praise the staff enough for my care. They were all so competent and caring.
The hospital was very clean. I was amazed by the choice of food which was very nice.
Before I was discharged they made sure I was able to manage at home and would be looked after.
