Sons day surgery at Harrogate District Hospital.
We had a long wait as he was last on the list and this bit could have been better organised from his perspective, it was a very long time to wait when you are nervous and v hungry.
But the post-op care from the paediatric Sister on the unit was excellent. She spoke to him like a grown up/teenager, not like a child. She was very understanding and supportive. Although I am a Matron myself in another hospital, sometimes your child needs to hear from the nurses in the service as he thought I was just trying to make him feel better.
This sister is for praise, as she kept returning to check on him, gave information and reassurance and made him feel "normal".
Thank you so much.
