"I had a fall causing a 3.5" ..."

About: Russells Hall Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I had a fall causing a 3.5" Laceration on my head.

It was clear I needed Hospital treatment I went to A&E 12:55 pm had 8 staples & back home for 2:pm

I was given the choice of stitches or staples

and the laceration 3 weeks later is fine.

What could be improved

I was only asked if I had lost consciousness

? was this sufficient
