My Daughter in Law and son were in hospital with their five week old baby. I make no comment on the care they received but they were told at 11.00 am that they could go home. We were minding a distressed toddler missing his parents while they waited and waited with no information. Finally they were were given the medication the baby needed eight and a half hours later and arrived home exhausted and tearful with a fretful baby who had been very ill. I fail to understand why this ridiculous delay is happening. Even if drugs have to checked three or four times, eight and a half hours is unacceptable.
