"BABY ILL IN A&E"

About: Salisbury District Hospital / Paediatrics

(as the patient),

My baby was 9 months when he became very ill, sickness,temperature, and just sleepy. A sure sign my baby wasnt well, so I took them to the A&E at 8pm on a july evening. We booked in and then had to wait 2 hours just to be seen by a nurse, we then got told to sit out in the waiting room yet again whilst my baby was crying and having sickness etc. We then got called through half an hour later to where the Childrens area is, we then waited in there for an hour where my son was now tired and no one was coming to us, we just got left in the childrens area. It got to the point where no one was bothering i then went up to a nurse who blatenly ignored me and walked straight past me even though i said excuse me, i didnt make a scene was just asking when the doctor could see my son as i wanted to settle him down and let him go to sleep this was now 12am. I said to my husband that if my baby becomes ill again i will never take him to a&e in Salisbury as no one had time for a 9 month old baby. No one didnt even check to make sure my baby was ok.
