Following the inquest verdict, Robert Woolley, of University Hospitals Bristol Foundation Trust, said the trust would reflect on Sean Turner's death, the coroner's conclusion and the inquest evidence.
The parents of a four-year-old boy who died at Bristol Children's Hospital have criticised the care he received.
Sean Turner died after suffering a brain haemorrhage in March 2012, six weeks after he had heart surgery.
Speaking at his inquest today, his parents claimed his ward was understaffed, and that doctors refused to move him to the Intensive Care Unit.
Steve and Yolande Turner also spoke to ITV News about their experience at the hospital.
The Coroner at the inquest into the death of 4-year-old Sean Turner, who died after undergoing heart surgery at the Bristol Children's Hospital, has recorded a narrative verdict.
In conclusion today the Coroner said there had been 'lost opportunities' in Sean's care, but stopped short of criticising the Hospital.
She said changes had already already been made at the hospital since the little boy died, and made no recommendations.
The inquest into the death of four year-old Sean Turner is expected to conclude today. He died following heart surgery at Bristol Children's Hospital and the inquest has heard claims of "deficiencies in care" while Sean was a patient on Ward 32 in 2012.
Up to 10 families are thought to be taking legal action against University Hospitals Bristol NHS Trust over treatment on the same ward.
