I was admitted on Monday 13th of April 2015. Whilst in theatre I had a vasovagal attack at the end of my procedure. The staff including the consultant were excellent,very caring, informative,and professional. It was only when I was returned to the ward that things didn't seem to be quite right. I was sent back to the ward I was admitted on, (when I was told It would be either ward 34 or CCU, and that I would be kept in over night) .The staff on ward 32 did not expect me back so I was put in a side room, ( which was a clinic room),my allocated nurse I saw that morning was surprised to see me back.I was given lunch and someone checked my wounds. I was then left 2 hours without any blood pressure check or monitoring . Then a nurse came in to my room and told me to get dressed and I could go home. By then I had started to feel unwell again. I told the nurse and they told me get dressed when you feel ready. Ignoring what I had just told them, they left my room and closed the door behind them . So I pulled the nurse call as I really did feel unwell, (if I had got off the bed I think I would of passed out !). So an assistant came in and I told them that I didn't feel too good,and they got me a tray as I felt really sick. Then a nurse entered the room with a bp monitor they took my bp and it had dropped to 82 . So my bed back was lowered and I was left for nearly 2 hours with no further checks. Then the nurse returned, gave me a discharge letter,and discharged me.
