Toddler with broken knee sent home from hospital21st June 2012
A hospital has launched an investigation after a boy of two who broke his knee was forced to walk on the untreated injury for two weeks because doctors dismissed it as "psychological".
Archie Eldridge was initially told he had suffered a suspected hairline fracture below the right knee but after being given a temporary cast and booked into a fracture clinic appointment 10 days later, doctors looked at his original x-rays and decided to remove the cast. A spokesman for Darent Valley Hospital in Kent said they will be investigating what happened.
