My 15 month old neice was emergency admitted by her family GP with breathing difficulties; upon arrival the first question her parents were asked wasnt whats her name, whats the problem or even how old is she. NO the first question a nurse asked was what religion is she?!! My neice was then passed from pillar to post by staff, each one less competent/ interested than the last. My neice was finally diagnosed with a serious chest infection given medicine and sent home; even though a member of staff said she should have been admitted so an introvenous course of medicine could be administered to clear the infection with her being so young/poorly. Two weeks later my neice was blue lighted to hospital again by her GP as she could not breath?! This time she was diagnosed with severe/chronic asthma!? Did she get appropriate treatment? No. Instead a nurse pinned my 15 month old neice to a bed when she was scared of the inhaler mask being crushed onto her face at which point her mum physically threw the `nurse` out of the room.
