  • Breast milk is known to give babies better protection against illnesses, however, doctors in Germany said parents should not buy milk online as donors could have infectious diseases

Why any mum will put their child through the risk out infection baffles me. I understand the pain mothers go through when the can produce milk and they want an equivalent substitute, Buying in on the internet with knowing little to nothing about the origin is just outright dangerous and risky for your child.

Recommend Your Hospital To Family and Friends Or Not?

Hospitals are dying (no pun intended) to know if you will recommend them to family and friends after your stay with them. From April 2013 NHS Patients in England will be able to speak their mind and get their views heard on the treatment they received in hospitals.

A Government initiative has been introduced to improve health standards. Patients will be able to vote online, by text or by post on a range of questions about their hospital stay and the treatment they received.

Personally I think this is a great idea as it makes everyone involved in patient care do their job better and also gives them the opportunity to find out where improvements should be made. My advice to hospital staff is, apart from doing your duties accordingly a smile goes a long way and be nice; you just might make someone’s day, which means getting a good recommendation.
