"My daughters care"

About: Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh at Little France / Maternity care

(as a parent/guardian),

Took my daughter in to simpsons triage to where we were taken to a room. She got asked for a urine sample which she gave. She was given fluids but after 2 hours was still waiting for an anti sickness injection, which she was to have at the same time of fluids, then had to find someone to unhook her from the drip so she could use the bathroom. Waited nearly 20 minutes, still no one came, so I had to unscrew the machine from the bed, so she could use the bathroom.
