on arrival at ayr hospital dalmellington road I was taken into a small changing room and then was taken into a small dimly lit room, where the nurse explained to me, that I was to have a canula fitted to my arm, for injection. After three attempts, she gave up, and I was then taken into the place where the scan was to take place. Senior person there, supervised the nurse in having another go at fitting the canular. She failed once again, the senior lady then fitted it in seconds (much to my relief). The lady then connected a large syringe type thing to my canula. Turned out it wasn't needed as the first scan was a "good one". After it was over I couldn't wait to get out of the hospital. My left hand was bruised, as was expected. However later that night, my arm was feeling a bit uncomfortable I tried rubbing my arm, and found what I thought was a swelling on my upper arm, only to find the nurse had left one of those rubber band things around my arm. No apology is needed or sought after, I feel this is a case of total negligence and incompetence.
