"A&E and ward 19"
About: Leicester Royal Infirmary Leicester Royal Infirmary Leicester LE1 5WW
The staff of the ward work very hard but they could do with more nurses as they were spread too thinly.
Parents make use of the food trolley and buy your own sandwiches. The food in the kitchen is for the children. Too many adults taking children's food meaning there's was reduced food for the children. This went on when the staff weren't around. There's so many food facilities around and fridges for the parents there's really no excuse for this behaviour, if your desperate ask then at least the staff know where the food is going.
We arrived without anything and struggled as there are very little facilities for teenagers, ie toothbrush shower gel shampoo entertainment to pass the time. A tiny sample packet of baby bath was all the nurse could offer. Come on LRI you could do a little bit more here for older children.
Of course you don't really want to be in hospital but the staff did everything they could to make our stay as pleasant as possible. I just think the LRI could give those staff better tools to make the stay for older ones even better.
