"My Daughters Story"

About: The Great Western Hospital / Vascular surgery

(as a relative),

My story takes place in Great western Hospital in Swindon. My 2 year old girl has a haemangioma that due to its placement became infected. Last year she was put into hospital for a week, the day time staff was very nice. But when it got to night time the staff didnt seem to care. One night my daughter was taken away from because they said they could make her stop crying- i didn't agree to this but she took still my daughter. Another night lots of new patients were coming in. And my daughter couldnt settel and was crying alot of the night. One of the nurses - same one who took her away the previous night tried to persuade me to let them put her on morphine as it would help her sleep - I was horrified. I knew she wasn't in pain she was tired. It was just because my daughter was noisey and distruptive not because she was in pain.
