"TRAUMATISED sorry to say"

About: New Cross Hospital

What I liked

the first nurses that you have contact with.

What could be improved

We was shocked how we was treated.We understand bad things happen to children,but to be judged,spoken infront of the public on many times was so wrong.we went to get help for our child.instead made out as bad parents.We are all for child protection,we got no worries.then a nurse put a security tag on him.Told we couldnt go home had to wait for social services,then told us they were happy we had not hurt our child.then changed &said we had to wait for s/s.A stay in hospital.In the morning we was told our son was okay,but couldnt go home as we had to wait for s/s.also one doctor brought up about baby P.We was so upset.The last member of staff came said so sorry for what happened.Then let us go.we was in shock,still are.My family & i has never felt so traumatised &hurt.We do understand the checks you have to do.but that was just wrong.

Anything else?

not to be judged.Understand as a parent its stressful for our children to be there in the first place.Not all parents hurt there children.ServiceChildrenDoctorsNursing staff
