"Care of my baby girl"

About: Rotherham Hospital

In July my 22month old was taken by ambulance to Rotherham hospital with breathing difficulties caused by croup and respiratory infection. From the moment we arrived the emergency staff including the ambulance drivers were amazing, my little girl ended up in the children's ward high dependency unit and again the staff were wonderful so professional, helpful and kind toward me and my little girl who was understandibly terrified. Those days spent in hospital were the worst days of our life but my little girl is fighting fit now and I just wanted people to know how well we were treated and for the nurses to get some recognition.
