"Stay away!"

Anything else?

I can't believe how rubbish this hospital is. My 2 year old daughter was taken to this hospital on Sunday with a fever of over 40 degrees which can be very dangerous in babies. They couldn't figure out what was wrong and told us just to give calpol and ibuprofen to keep her temperature down. They didn't even try to investigate or assess why she running a fever and said maybe its just a tummy bug - see how she goes. They couldn't even be bothered to do a simple urine test which would have revealed the cause of the fever. I had to take her to hospital again today because she kept running a fever. We went to darent valley this time and they had diagnosed her infection within 50 minutes. My poor baby has been suffering for the last four days because QEH couldn't be bothered! I thank my lucky stars it wasn't something more serious and I will never ever be using this hospital again!
