I had surgery at Grantham last week. I am concerned with the tick list approach, I think it leads to a fasle sense of security and leaves little room to the individual and thier worries and concerns. The anaesthetist left me with a bruised face and a bruised and sore wrist from the cannula site which seems to have been forced down the side of my ulna, after I had been induced with gas. On returning to the ward I found that decisions on future treatment been taken and been discussed with my husband without my consent. The staff did however response to some of my concerns and the surgeon did come to speak to me before I left.
