"4 year old with a broken arm sent home"

About: Morriston Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as a relative),

My grandson broke his arm very recently.

Within 15 minutes he was taken to Morriston hospital. Nearly 5 hours later he was sent home because there was no slot or staff for him to go to theatre. We were told to come back at 8-30am the next morning, which we did, and we had the same reply. But to come back later and he would have his surgery.

This was a 4 year old baby that was in some pain. I am so upset about it all.
