What could be improved
Listening to me.
Friendly staff, very busy. They had not had a break in around 7 hours, they need more staff!!
They missed my sons broken wrist, even when he and I kept mentioning it. The nurse gave it a sqeeze and said it was fine. The woman who did the x-ray would not x-ray his wrist because it was not authorised. The doctor checked the x-ray and found his broken elbow, which was good. When I again mentioned his wrist the doctor asked the nurse, the nurse said she had checked it and it was fine. He has been in a cast for 6 weeks and is having an operation to put a screw in. He had a broken wrist for two days before it was spotted at Musgrove. People can injure more than one body part!!
I know you were all very busy but I wish you had listened.
