Posted by An anxious mum and fellow nurse (as ),
I took my son into A&E recently and wanted to say thanks to the 2 lovely nurses we seen. I'm so sorry I can't remember the young female nurse' name and Drew.
My sons toenail was falling off and despite the fact that I'm a nurse myself I just didn't know what to do for the best. I couldn't bring myself to pull it off and I didn't feel I could leave it as it was.
I knew it was a very minor complaint and really felt bad taking him in so I was very grateful at how kind the nurses were, they never let me feel in anyway that I had wasted their time, even when while waiting for the doctor my son caught his nail on my clothing and pulled it off himself, which really made me feel a bit daft.
It can be difficult knowing what to do for the best especially for your children, so thank you both for making us feel at ease.
Also my son cant wait to come back cause you have great toys 😊.
