Started off at the a and e. Waiting time was ridiculous and they said there was only one doctor for all patients!!! Thats disgraceful... You have tired, moany, hungry and unwell children waiting hours on end. After being seen by triage waited again for the doctor. Eventually doctor saw my 7 week old baby and decided to admit us overnight for monitoring. Waited again to be taken to the ward! I was the only patient still at a and e. Staff shoretage is becoming more of an excuse i find. Staff are slow and lazy. They need to work faster and harder.
Now the childrens ward. Parents be aware u will not sleep at all. The uncomfortable arm chair is where u have to 'sleep'. Crying babies and loud noises throughout the night. Consultant was efficient and was seen early morning. I was told my baby needs a full body scan and i will be discharged if everything normal. Guess what??? More waiting. Kept asking staff to chase it up but they pretend they are soo busy with only 10 patients on the ward and approx 5 doctors on the ward!
Apparently they cant contact the radiologist as it has to be the radiologist that contacts them! Its just one phone call!!!!
I got soo frustrated. No sleep for over 24 hrs and no treatment or medication for my baby. So what am i waiting for.
Explained that my baby is not feeling comfortable as she has a skin condition which requires medication and a bath! None of which was offered me to. Sooo dissappointed with this hospital! No empathy towards the parent at all!
