"Small cut, treated badly"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

Anything else?

Our 4 year old had a small cut to her face, which needed glueing. We saw 3 nurses, 1 dr and finally 1 nurse who was able to treat what was a very minor injury. This took over 4 hours by which time the cut had begun to heal. To make it worse... the nurse didnt carry out the procedure correctly. She didnt push to wound together, leaving my daughters eye wound open with a high possibility of scarring. I'll certainly drive by Whythenshawe next time on my way to another hospital.
