Hospital admits plaster error over toddler's broken leg

A toddler with a broken leg was sent home with a plaster on the wrong limb and then hospital staff implied it was his mother's fault for not spotting it.

The error was made when Bella Powell took 21-month-old son Rafe to Torbay Hospital after he fell from his high chair at his Brixham home.

On returning to get the error resolved, Mrs Powell was laughed at by staff and told she should have said something. The hospital has apologised for the mistake and the comments made by staff...

It seems there's a lot of this 'nuisance patient syndrome' going around lately...
