"my daughter was admitted to childrens ..."

About: Furness General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

my daughter was admitted to childrens ward with a very rare disease. the disease was diagnosed at the eary stage by the doctor and due to this our daughter has almost recovered from her illness. all the staff were very nice to us all and very understanding, they made us feel comfortable during our stay.the food was not to bad and the facillities for parents was very clean and looked after.

What could be improved

more awareness for kawasaki disease, we were lucky it was diagnosed by the docter as he had done a study on it and knew what it was, we were first told it was nappy rash, than hand foot and mouth and then scarlett fever by the docs in a&e and wasnt until we got to the childrens ward that they found out what it was.

Anything else?

keep doing what your doing, your all doing a great job
