What could be improved

my 10 yr old son has downs syndrome and was on dolphin ward for pneumonia he is extremely scared of hospitals and is hard to manage the standard of care he recieved was appaling registrar doctors were very rude and one said i should take him home as nurses couldnt deal with him when he was referred back the same nite we were left sat in the parents coffee room because they had gave his bed away my son was later found to have 70 percent of his left lung full of water .

Anything else?
