"Poor treatment on my 5 years old son"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

26th April doctor from A&E sent to Disney Ward, so my child was vomiting 24 hours and urine have lot off ketones and body lost a lot off fluid. While waiting for doctor, we seen how nurses sitting on table and eating, it looks awful. Doctors examined my son after 5 hours of waiting and fund another diagnosis tonsillitis. He was sent home without treatment, My son did not stop vomiting and next day 27th my GP send us back to Disney Ward. This day we sitting on chairs and drinking water, child slept on chairs. After 5 hours water drinking we come back at home, without treatment. The third day we again have visited A&E, and doctor decided do not send back to Disney Ward, so that they do not do any treatment.
