Orthopaedic inpatient physiotherapy

There are 3 orthopaedic wards in the hospital: an elective ward for planned orthopaedic procedures such as hip and knee replacements, an adult trauma ward for fractures of any kind, and a ward specialising in the management of people who have fractured the top of their femur.

Our physiotherapy team will also assess and treat when appropriate, orthopaedic cases on the children's ward.

A team of physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants work across these wards to provide high quality patient centred care.  They work closely with other members of the ward team, patients and carers to co-ordinate treatments and plan for a safe and timely discharge from hospital.

Physiotherapists are involved with assisting patients to regain or maximize their independence by teaching them to mobilse safely with the appropriate walking aids. They provide advice and information about exercises and general progression of treatments.

Where appropriate, further ongoing physiotherapy is organised, this may be in an outpatient physiotherapy department, rehabilitation units within the region, or home environment if required

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
