Romola is a 9 bedded, Elective Orthopaedic Ward
This same sex accommodation unit supports mainly patients with hip, knee and shoulder replacements
Our expected length of stay for primary hip and knee joint replacements is 24 – 48 hours for shoulder replacements, it is 24 hours.
Our aim is to sit patients out of bed 6 hours post operatively.
We encourage our patients to sit out of bed for breakfast on the first morning post operatively, ready for our physiotherapist to start the rehabilitation process.
Romola ward works closely with physiotherapists and occupational therapists to support our patients.
