"Some of the nurses made my son ..."

About: Poole General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Some of the nurses made my son feel comfortable during his stay.

What could be improved


Anything else?

My son has been sent home with a broken shoulder as the doctor felt he could cope ok with the pain at home. As no instructions had been recieved from Southampton specialists at this time. My son is now sat at home with an untreated boken Glenoid, we've had no follow up. I have received an appointment letter this morning for 2 weeks time, it has already been 1 week since he broke his shoulder. we were told he had a 1 week window from when he broke it, in case he needs an operation. He is 12 yrs old and in pain, and no one knows what they are going to do with his break because it is an unusual break. I suppose your figures look better now he's not on the ward anymore!!!
