"Fractured wrist"

About: Ilkeston Community Hospital

I arrived at 8am today and was very promptly treated, after being referred for an X-ray and back to MIU I must praise the staff on reception/X-ray department and MIU nurses who dealt with my 7 year old who had fractured her wrist.

They did not have the correct size wrist split but they put her in a sling and bandaged her up and will be retuning tomorrow for the split which they ordered. The nurses I wish to say a big thank you too as they put my daughter at ease which made the situation a breeze with her. Thank you and well done Ilkeston Hospital for 5* service

Response from Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for your Kind comments regarding the service you and your daughter received when you visited our MIU recently, from all of the staff here.

I am pleased that you both had such a positive experience, and I hope when you returned as planned the correct splint was available for your daughter.

We wish her a speedy recovery for her injury
