I have to say after reading the reviews on the hospital I was in 2 minds to cancel, but have to say apart from the nurse in recovery I am glad I went a head from the receptionist in riverside to the nurse, the anesthetist and consultant they answered any questions I had about the procedure I was having, there was a bit of a delay but a nurse came out and told me they were running late. The only down side was the nurse in recovery Itold her I was feeling sick,she just said to me no point in giving you anything your not being sick. Luckily another nurse came in from the next stage recovery who asked me how I was feeling so I told her I was feeling sick she told the nurse to give me something, as she gave me something in the canula my arm became very painful and cold and heavy,a rash started to spread up my arm she just carried on said its ment to feel like that.one of the anesthetists walked past and I called her over and she had to flush the canula she said I had had a reaction and gave me some antihistamine. Before I was moved into the next stage recovery the original nurse raised her voice at me and made me feel bad for saying I was feeling sick. I don't no what her problem was I counted 5 times that she put a coat on and disappeared out of recovery telling one of the other nurse's to " keep an eye on the patient " while I was in first stage recovery.
