Although we had been told in general terms that my daughter would have to stop all fluids or food we were not advised at a particular time to stop all food and fluids at that particular time prior to a general anaesthetic. Luckily when I asked for something for my daughter and was told she should have stopped eating an hour before that, I was able to work out that she had not eaten or drunk anything in that time.
It appears to me that each member of staff is carrying out their duties, but no one particular person is taking prime responsibility for the patient and what they have to do.
