During Mirena Coil insertion -
The Speculum did not lock, meaning that doctor needed a staff member to hold this open. This appeared to cause difficulties throughout as both negotiated who would hold speculum open, open lids of jars and packets of sterile instruments.
Unfortunately the staff member seemed unsure of the procedure and needed coached throughout.
This staff member had to leave the room because there were no scissors there to cut the threads of the coil, she left still wearing her blue gloves and returned wearing them, which I felt uncomfortable with.
The doctor asked the staff member for swabs and she was unsure what was being asked for.
