"Delivery Suite, Children’s Centre and diagnosis..."

About: The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (King's Lynn)

On my visit to the delivery suite in February 2014 the room was clean and tidy, however after giving birth the floor was left with blood on for near enough 6 hours before eventually being cleaned. In March my baby was admitted to hospital Rudham Ward for vomiting and for a failure to thrive and loss in weight to be told it was reflux and I was overfeeding. Then again in March my baby was rushed in to Rudham Ward through an ambulance because he was wheezing and vomiting, 111 nurse could hear him wheezing over the phone, repeatedly asked staff if it was milk allergy/intolerance I was ignored and told it was very unlikely he had one because he was gaining weight however he is still on a failure to thrive now, his milk has now been changed to soya and miraculously his symptoms improved he is now feeding well and the wheezing has stopped and gaining more weight. We had a review to Roxburgh Children’s Centre in April 2014 baby was weighed and measured, paediatrician had a little chat with us about his symptoms which we were then told it sounded more like an intolerance to milk, no tests were done or suggested.
