In December, I attended at the Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, for an endoscopy procedure. In accordance with the leaflet I was sent with my appointment I had fasted for 24 hours prior to the appointment. The nurse attending was, to say the least, most surprised as this was not required.
It transpired I had been given the wrong leaflet.
Needless to say we were both very angry. She, herself, took it up with the Admin Department.
I coped, just, with not eating - the staff were wonderful, making sure I had 2 pieces of toast before I left.
What would the consequences have been if I had been elderly or infirm? ? ! !
