About: Royal Berkshire Hospital Royal Berkshire Hospital Reading RG1 5AN
My daughter was taken to A&E last night. My the time the ambulance crew got us did the hand over.
We for taken through to the paediatric section of A&E. She had to sit on hard plastic chair which she found really uncomfy due to back and hop pain. No pain relief was offered.
Over An hr later I asked how long the wait was.
By this time it was the early hrs. We were told it would be another 3-4 hrs at least if there were no emergencies.
There were only 3 children in this section and all the beds empty.
She moved to a bed in a side room after I asked if she can lie down as she was so uncomfy. The floor of the room was really dirty.
I fully understand emergencies happen and really don't have a problem with that. My daughter was in pain and no one seemed to bother.
