I was admitted to A and E and I was told they would operate that day. So no food. No op. Operation on Wednesday. No food. No op. Operation Thursday. No food. But an hour before the op the anaesthesia decided that my pottesium was too low. Now they were told that 3 days earlier but done nothing about it. No op. Finally had my op on the Friday. Until then no sign to say Nil by Mouth. But suddenly on the Friday a sign was put up, when I could eat.. Lucky for them, I was able to tell them, because nobody knew.
They lost my tablets that I had to bring in. Nobody came when I buzzed. My alarm on the drip went off and nobody knew how to fix it, so it was ignored.. Never again
