"Doctors neglecting to properly diagnose pTients"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Anything else?

My mother a Mrs Pearl Spink was on Saturday the 17/11/2012 diagnosed in A&E as having fractured her hip , on admission to the ward (Amber A) she was then re diagnosed with a fractured pelvis .Today the 22/11/2012 a fractured hip was found on rediagnosis that means if the Doctor in A&E had been believed mum would not have had to suffer for five days not a good way to treat a 92 year old
