"My son fractured his femur"

About: Sheffield Children's Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a relative),

My 2 year old was admitted to ward S3 at Sheffield Children’s Hospital a fractured femur. We had excellent care from both the nurses and doctors (especially the nurses who despite working long shifts worked efficiently and always with a smile). The worst bits, apart from being there in the first place, were seeing my son in so much pain. The food was also processed yuk! Also realising it was a children’s ward and being there on my own, my son was in such pain I couldn’t leave him, despite a parents room down the corridor I still couldn’t get a drink or food till the next day when my husband arrived!
