"The childs ward was reasonably ..."

About: Sandwell General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The childs ward was reasonably clean.

The Nurses were quite helpful when requested.

Security on the ward was good

What could be improved

The ward was very noisy throughout the night.

The only other patient in my (6 mth) old sons bay was around 10 years old, and was very bored as he had no peers or activities for much of the time.

Anything else?

The rules on the coffee/tea room were ridiculous - as no children were allowed in the tea room, if only one of us were with him we couldn't get or have a drink, as this would entail leaving a sick 6 mth old alone in an unusual hospital while we have a drink.
