"We recently had to attend a&e ..."

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

(as a relative),

What I liked

We recently had to attend a&e with our daughter following a fall in which she injured her wrist. Our initial assessment and visit to x ray was completed within half an hour which was great. Friendly nurses

What could be improved

After her x ray we were left to sit for 3 hrs before being called in to see a doctor . In this time we were sat amongst children with rashes and a child being sick in to a bowl. We feared we would be leaving the hospital with an infection or worse . Is there no way breaks and falls can be separated from rashes etc ????
