Excellent department and Staff on G2 Ward

What I liked

Having been admitted as an emergency, I had to wait a while to see the doctor and be fully admitted but the staff were amazing - keeping me updated on how long i'd have to wait until the doctor could see me to getting me something to eat at 3am in the morning. Having been admitted for an acute flare up of a long term condition there was little they could actually do for me, however i was treated with care and respect, even when i got quite upset - i was included in the treatment plans at each stage, and given as much support as possible. The nursing staff - especially one particular nurse and health care assistant on the Thursday night / Friday morning were absolutely amazing when i was in considerable pain and distress. The doctors i saw were equally lovely and i would not hesitate to choose to be admitted in future to this ward. Thanks G2 - you made an emergency admission just a little easier to deal with!

Excellent nursing care but...

Overall really excellent nursing care on this ward when I had to have a short stay here after surgery, however I was pretty shocked by one incident when the fitted catheter fell onto the floor (not sterile) and was then fitted back to me from being on the floor. This didn't seem sterile or common sense as the floor wasn't clean. I've had discomfort with this area since not sure if two are related.

The rest of my experience on this ward was good.

friends and family doesnt work properly so posting here

Comments All staff very caring and showed such empathy during a difficult time. Very professional. Nothing was too much trouble for the health care assistants and nurses, one member of staff in particular was so kind even though she was delivering such terrible news, I will be eternally grateful for how informative, professional and kind she was. I was touched when staff made me some toast as I was hungry as I'd not felt well for breakfast at home that morning. They make a good cup of tea. Very obviously a nurse led department as doctors not visible. Department would benefit from a lick of paint as bits look a little tatty (eg counselling room wallpaper coming off and horrible dead looking plastic plants). Lunch menu, last revised in 2009 was a tatty photocopy of a photocopy the sandwich was horrible but served a purpose. No fruit available. The negative things don't really matter when you have brilliant staff.

gynaecology outpatient

Now an outpatient at jessops, last year in terrible pain which may be due to ovarian cysts, though the consultant from previous hospital was going to discharge me, since then my GP referred me to the gynaecologist at Jessops, they have been really good, yesterday had a scan, and waiting for results which I am sure will b okay, if it is I have another appt in October for follow up. It is reassuring to know that you can receive a good standard of care and explanation of why and what Is wrong and how you treatment is going to be managed.

Gynaecology

The Gynaecologist and her team of nurses are quite frankly the most caring and compassionate medical professionals I have ever met. They made me feel safe and cared for during an uncomfortable proceedure. They showed interest in me as a person and my other health problems during the proceedure that put me at ease and made me feel respected and understood. I think other departments in the hospital have a lot to learn from this team.

Lovely nurses at ward G1

I was admitted to ward G1 on Friday the 9th of May. I was very scared about my procedure and the nurses made me as comfortable as possible, when I was in pain they assured me they're here for me and I felt supported which helped me so much. Every nurse was so nice to me and helped me through a difficult time in my life, so I hope this gets back to them and they hear what wonderful people they were to me. Thank you so much.

Out patient appointment

Visited the Jessop hospital for an appt in October. First impressions were poor-old dirty magazines and cups of water left from a previous clinic. The doctor I saw was OK.Nurse in the room all the time, no explanation given. Doctor said she would arrange an MRI scan if appropriate. Nothing showed up on the scan. I asked for a copy of the report. It consisted of two lines and contained two errors. I was told by the secretary that I had to arrange a treatment,that was suggested by the clinic, with my GP. When I went to see my GP I discovered that copies of letters had not been received by the practice.

pre op assessment

Staff on J2 were really friendly and welcoming and extremely thorough in their checks. Only snag being given an afternoon appointment when having chest problems it was clear I would need to see the anaesthetist, however it was arranged for me to come back another day to see the doctor. Whilst having an op is not a pleasant prospect the staff and care of all departments at Hallamshire and at the Jessop has been brilliant so far. Now just to wait for the surgery.
