I was at Tameside A&E early one Sunday evening with my daughter, who is 6 years old. She had fallen over and hurt her wrist and I knew something wasn't right. She had an X-ray, and the Dr looked at it. He got another Dr to look at her X-ray, and both said it wasn't broken. I was told to come back if it was no better. They bandaged it up and off we went. She was still in lots of pain.
A few days later, I was making the kids their tea, and my daughter asks if she has to take off the bandage tomorrow, because it’s been 5 days and tells me it still really hurts. So I have a look and her arm’s still swollen and still doesn't look right. We went up to the MRI and low and behold she's chipped her bone. I’m shocked that Tameside hadn't even noticed it the first time. I think it's disgusting how they can treat kids like that.
