"ane with my 14month old little boy"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

My child been poorly for weeks. . Back and forward to see gp. . Under care of community nurses for his asthma.. he's been struggling with his breathing.. panting.. High temperature and low oxygen levels.. was advised to get him to ane if he got worse.. reluctant to as he was asleep and settled but coughing and struggling to breath got him there and was triarged straight away.. reassured and seen by a doctor quickly. .He had perked up on way to hospital as kids do and his 6 puffs off his inhaler he'd had kicked in and his oxygen levels had come up. . I thought I would be fobbed off and ignored.. However I was wrong.. The doctor listened to his chest and said it sounded fine at present but after listening to his history without hesitation gave him steroids and gave us some to go home with..he's still very poorly a day might have to go back .. but the community nurses are trying there hardest to keep him at home.. All staff were friendly and efficient and listened. . Best hospital visit I have experienced.
