I had to visit A&E with my son for a head injury. This was dealt with appropriately, but since the visit, my son, husband and I have has severe vomiting and diarrhoea. I attribute this to the hospital visit as others have eaten the same as us and have not complained of any D&V. I rang to notify the department that we were ill as a result of our visit and was asked "how do you know it's from here?" I was doing a public service in notifying the department as I do not want others to suffer like we are. Please use the anti-bacterial gel points people - they are there for a very good reason.
