- It's good to have a nice break whilst away on holiday….
Delay any form of manipulation to correct the deformity, until at least 12 hours later (no valid reason)
No analgesia offered in the 3 hours we were there*
Temp backslab that COMPLETELY coved the hand/fingers – the reply when I explained the need to assess NV status whilst I ‘peeled’ back the cover – “it’ll be alright….”
All this was in the ‘private clinic’ that dissapointingly the resort directed the taxi to – being ‘shook up parents’ we kind of went along with it, until we came to our senses, and we self discharged and got a taxi to the local state hospital. Seen and manipulated under GA that eve.
Although, even then the ‘care’ was being ‘safely manipulated’ by myself and my wife – staying up all night to check the cap refil etc as no one else seems too bothered by this….basically being the ONLY recovery ‘staff’ for a three year old wheeled straight out of theatre onto an (almost) unstaffed ward (wife’s a gas girl – said he should be in a fully monitored environment until roused)… And managing his (mostly unnecessary) IV fluid rate… Maintenance of 125ml/hr for an 11 kg sound right to ANYONE?!!!
I mean – fluids left like that can KILL tiny kids if left unnoticed – I worry for those people who simply ‘go along’ with what a ‘specialist’ may be suggesting, thinking its best for their little ones…(through no fault of their own)

I just wish it was my arm, not his 😥
For those who moan about the NHS and it’s flaws, I feel they pail in insignificance to the downright dangers and shoddy practice we witnessed for our own dear son – I kid you not, that if it weren’t for me and the wifey’s medical backgrounds, if left to the Cypriot doctors ‘management plan’, our son could have lost his hand…
Oh well, how to entertain an active toddler on a sun, sea, and swimming holiday, when he can’t really have sun, sea, or swimming……?!
