Anything else?

I was surprised the blanket and pillows from my room were taken for use in the operating theatre.I thought everything on the operating table needed to be as germ free as possible.

Response from Bmi - The Foscote Hospital

Thank you very much for your feedback. We tend to keep the patient’s own pillow for comfort and a blanket usually from stock are taken for the patient to use only whilst they are in the anaesthetic room pre-surgery and the recovery room post-surgery due to the low temperature within these areas.
