"Welcome to the ward"
About: King George Hospital King George Hospital Ilford IG3 8YB
The standard letter of instructions says on arrival you will be welcomed by a nurse and measured for compression stockings which you will wear for the duration of your stay. By putting the two facts into the same sentence this implies the two actions will be done at the same time. So why was I welcomed at 8.00 onto the ward after arriving at 7.00as instructed in the same letter, and not measured and fitted with stockings as 12.25 just before going into the operating theatre? How does this help to prevent anything?
