"daughter's meds given 3.5 hours late"

About: University Hospital Lewisham / Maternity care

(as a relative),

My daughter was born on the maternity ward at Lewisham Hospital, and I have never been so afraid in my life. The staff I encountered were rude, unprofessional, and they gave my wife the worst attention I have ever witnessed in my life.

At one point, my 1 day old daughter's essential meds for her eyes were given 3.5 hours late. When I asked why she had been missed I got the reply, everybody is very busy, in the end I took over the responsibillity of doing the meds myself.

Trust me, after this experience I would not allow any more of my children to be born there. Some of the staff seem to have a very big "I don't give a damn" attitude. It's completely disgusting.
