"Disgraceful and appauling ward 25"

About: King's Mill Hospital

Anything else?

My 2 year old was sent in this month after breaking is leg because it was a bank holiday he was left on a traction for 5 days they couldnt xray him or take him to theatre till after the bank holiday tueday comes and he was all ready for theatre he didnt have no food or drink since the night before 11am comes and my son still hasnt been taken to theatre nor as a doctor been back to tell us owt so after i went to pals to make a complain then the doctor came straight away to see me and said they are not taking him to theatre today because if he waits till tomorrow there will be a more experienced surgeon on. So if i wouldnt of said anything we would of been left waiting and my child was starving all ready also i over heard a nurse say to a doctor on bank holiday monday i told her she can wait till the morning for his xray the doctor said no its ok i can fit him in today. They also guessed my babys weight and was giving him to much medicine and they sent me home with calpol which is for ages 6 and over and for adults my son is 2 and evertime they camed in to my son to do things or to clean his wee/poo mess up they never washed thier hands the cleaners never wipe is side down were he had his dinner and the doctors interupted his meal time when they are not allowed to do that and so much more like the doctor should of review him before he was discharge but as he was busy yet again they said he as a foolow up appointment in a weeks time he can wait till then
