"very poorly grandson."

About: Sandwell General Hospital

My 15month old grandson was admitted to lyndon 1 childrens ward last week. (12th January 2014). He had breathing problems and a high temperature. He was quickly diagnosed with bronchilitis and the influenza virus. He was put in a HDU room in isolation, so he wouldnt pick up any other germs/viruses. The doctors and nurses were brilliant. The care he received was second to none. They kept us all well informedand were very easy to approach. They looked after his mommy (who stayed by his bedside) very well. After being on lyndon 1 for 6 days he was well enough to come home. This was not a nice thing to happen to a small child, but thank you to all the staff that helped us get through this tough time. you were brilliant.

Response from Sandwell General Hospital

It's so good to hear your grandson is on the mend and the treatment he and your family received was what they needed. We aim to take care of all children and their families this way and it's good to hear feedback when things are running as they should.
