"children's ward"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

sshocking treatment of a child with additional needs and the treatment she is getting is the same as shei had for 18 months at home. stressing my daughter out by removing her nappy and forcing her to wet herself and soil herself as she has not got the sensation needed to use the toilet then she is expected to sit for 15 minutes on a toilet with having adhd is impossible for her to sit with something she enjoys for that time there for scaring her to use the toilet the staff are not helpful at all just follow you about trying to force you to drink the juice she has absently disgusted and would rather be in the rvi the facilities on the grounds are very limited especially when staying in for a long period
