"High standard of care for my great niece"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Accident and emergency Rotherham Hospital / Paediatrics

(as a relative),

My great niece aged 4 became acutely ill early one morning and she was taken to A&E at Rotherham. The care in the department for my great niece and her mum from nurses and doctors in the department was excellent. My great niece was taken to the resusitation room immediately and expert was quickly in place even though it was only 530am.

When my great niece was stable and treatment commenced she was transferred to the children's ward where the high standard of care continued for my great niece and her mum who recently had had a baby.

Fourtunately my great neice made a quick recovery and was able to go home the following evening but she made good use of the play facilities before she left.
