"Paediatric dept excellent"

About: Hereford County Hospital

My 13 month old granddaughter was rushed to A&E due to a sudden onset of breathing problems. She was fast tracted to resus 2 where she received excellent and very swift treatment. Her parents were treated with dignity and compassion and staff explained the reason for Her condition (a childhood infection) and were reassured that they did the right thing rushing her to hospital. Baby was admitted to the paediatric ward where she was stablised and appropriately medicalised. Due to the kind doctors and nurses attentive action,baby was allowed home after a couple of hours of observation with ongoing medication. Thank you all so much - to staff in A&E, resus, and all in the Paediatruc dept. A very grateful and relieved grandmother.
