On 24/11/2015 I had a 1.00pm appointment for a ICD lead repositioning. A bed was available by 2.15 pm and I was prepped for my procedure. Theatre gown, chest shaved and canula fitted in my left hand.
I appreciated that the procure before me ( I was no. 2 for the afternoon) was complex and the patient was returned to the ward approx 5.30pm. At 5.45pm I was informed that my procedure would not now take place. Surely someone on the ward knew the situation before 5.00pm if not before, and I could have been discharged an hour earlier.
