Yesterday I was interroagted by a doctor and their2 sidekicks after my operation for about 10 min when I felt they got quite irate and told me that I should not have been on this Brockham ward at all as it was a completely wrong ward for me.
As I was a completely innocent bystander in all this, especially being sent to the ward after my operation, I was a bit upset. When the doctor mentioned my kidney stones, I knew that something was completely wrong as I never had any kidney stones and coming from all doctor's family, I would definitely knew about them!
I asked whether these were my notes they were looking and at - and guess what - they were not! It was for a completely different person! I did not expect something like this to happen at East Surrey Hospital. Good job I was awake and they didn't try to get my "kidney stones" out.
I think it is appalling, mistakes happen, but it was me who actually asked them whether these were the right notes!
I wouldn't even know what to suggest.
Nurses, though, were brilliant, in my opinion the only good thing about East Surrey.
