"Birthday Boy service"

About: St Richard's Hospital

My son aged 4yrs old managed to cut his toe badly while running around the garden. It was his birthday. We took him to A&E, the nurses were great especially when they found out it was his birthday. A member of staff found him stickers inc a special birthday one. They were wonderful with my son even making him laugh. They made sure he was finished in time for his party.

Response from St Richard's Hospital

Thank you very much for this feedback. We are really pleased that your little boy's birthday was not entirely spoilt by his accident! Our nursing staff clearly helped ensure he felt special on his special day and we hope that he enjoyed his party later on that day. We hope his toe is healing nicely and are sure he is already back to running around the garden!
