"3 year old son passed from pilar to post"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Extremely outraged but the way my son has been treated. Getting told one thing then another the next day. Reassured by the surgeons today at 4.40 what was happening and now 11.30pm they have came in and changed their minds again. I am so concerned my sons bone infection won't clear up with all this change. Even the chef orthopaedic surgeon said today his infection is that serious he needs iv antibiotics for at least another 5/7 days but someone else has came in and changed that. I will be making a formal complaint and asking to see the most senior person tomorrow to ask why all the change and would like them to explain there actions to why they think their way would work when 2 others have said it wouldn't.
