I had my baby here and I have had my two previous babies there too. I cannot compliment the staff highly enough, from the catering staff to the cleaning staff to the nurses, midwives and doctors. The level of care was outstanding. I would like to especially mention Laura the night nurse on the general maternity ward. She is an exceptional nurse, patient, kind, knowledgeable and she made my long labour all the more manageable. She is a fantastic asset to the hospital and one I hope is appreciated. The doctor, Mohammed, who delivered my baby when I was very tired! He was outstanding. He made the delivery easy and with the level of intervention that was required I had no tears or stitches. I think that is a testament to the care he took. The anaesthetist who administered my epidural was amazing and I think I now love her! I felt nothing. Bridie and all her team -especially the two midwives who looked after me during delivery-I cannot express my gratitude for everything. You were so great at your jobs and made the birth of my son very special. I have worked in catering in hospitals and the quality of what is offered in the Rotunda is second to none. Its wholesome, filling and delicious. I think the catering team should be very proud of the job they do. The service staff on the wards are efficient, friendly, helpful and very aware not to be intrusive. I slept through most meal times and my food was always sitting waiting for me when I woke.

Dr Owens and his cardiology team are outstanding. Very friendly, calming and totally professional. Dr Owens and all the staff I can't remember all their names. Una, Evelyn, Caroline, Aysha, and so many more. Thank you all.

The cancer ward nursing staff were overall caring and pleasant as were the kitchen and housekeeping staff. Kitchen staff were very kind about supplying water and trying to find any food patient could tolerate. The phlebotomists were excellent especially Robert. The nutritionist was very helpful. Dr Thirion, radiation oncologist, is pleasant and professional and takes time to reply to questions. The palliative care consultant is very sympathetic and took the time to do his best for patient. Prof Armstrong is very professional and will take time to respond to questions. Scanning/X-rays departments fine. The staff who push one in a wheelchair from ward-to-departments and back are all very nice.

Everyone from the porters to Mr Buckley/Dr Kirk's were amazing. I was in Surgical 1 and was so well looked after by all medical and surgical staff. God bless them all.

I have now been on the gynae ward four times for two ERPCs following two miscarriages. I cannot speak highly enough of the care, dignity and respect I have received. The consultants, Dr Sasi, Dr Ciprike, and all of the fabulous nurses and care attendants, Briege, Elaine, Miriam, Tracey just to name a few. The ward act as a great team and are great at their job. They showed such professionalism and kindness that will never be forgotten. They really are in the right job, the caring profession.

Ms Barry and her team saved my leg from amputation and spent a lot longer in surgery than expected going above and beyond when it would have been easier and cheaper to amputate. The doctors, nurses, surgeons worked non stop to not only save my leg but my life. I got 24hr care from the nurses, who were very gentle and non-judgemental. They helped me in any way they could. I honestly hated hospital because of past hospital experience and I won't go to any other hospital now. I'm very very grateful for Ms Barry and her expertise and the chat she had with me which helped me to stay calm and explain things without treating me like an idiot. This is so rare but most appreciated. The only lil problem I had was when it came to finally discharging me, there was a lack of communication and letters and meds and aftercare wasn't sorted out. I was meant to be given physiotherapy but didn't get it until 4 months later, which Ms Barry immediately set up and was quite annoyed that they hadn't sorted it for me. Also I want to give props to the lads that wheeled me in my bed all over the hospital, very nice and they know when to joke with you and when to leave you be. Very professional lads. All in all I was terrified going in from ambulance but they soon took care of me and I left fixed and happy. Compared to other hospitals I've stayed in, this one is like a five star hotel! The other hospitals should take notes. I must stop or I will be typing all day.

Heather Waters - she was the midwife that cared for my wife the entire night through the induction process. And she was still there in the morning in theatre when Luke was born by emergency c-section. She exemplified what nursing is really supposed to be like. And I'm a nurse myself so I watched out for everything. A few other people that I remember who stood out were Amy Cullen, Kate (CNM2) on duty that night, Michelle (a south-African nurse), a male from NICU (I got the feeling that he was a CNM, as he wore navy), Helena from NICU, another nurse in navy when my wife was in room 36. She called the pediatrician when Luke's blood sugar was low. The paediatrician herself (a doctor with headscarf and glasses) was absolutely lovely, diligent and caring. All this was from the 10/03/17-12/03/17. But right from the start, the receptionist in the early pregnancy unit, the doctors that scanned my wife throughout the pregnancy, the sonographers in the ultrasound department (they were amazing), the 3 different guys I saw at security, the ladies at reception, the admissions lady, the ER staff. This hospital is second to none.
