"Broken Wrist"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

I took my 9 year old Son to Children's A and E on the 15th October '14 with a broken wrist. Unfortunately he had only come out of plaster cast the day before and then managed to break his wrist again the next day!! The staff that we met at A and E, on Willow ward and at theatre were absolutely amazing. They were professional and reassuring and one of the theatre staff, I believe, went the extra mile and stayed on at the end of her shift to do the MUA. We felt that he was in very safe hands when he was taken down to theatre and very cared for when he was in A and E and Willow ward. He now has a few follow on appointments to make sure that everything is ok. I was very pleased with how he was looked after. Please covey my thanks to all the staff involved.
