I was at the hospotal, ward no 1 , 1st floor, for a minor operation, which was going to be dome , with general anaesthetic. My husband broughr me, and came in the ward with me, to support me, I was a bit anxious. He was told by one of the nurses, that he couldnt accompany me to the the theatre, and that he should leave asap, as I was going down to theatre, within 30 mins., When he left, I became anxious, and would have liked him to have been with me, up to been put to sleep. And i almost called the whole thing off. After i realised, that the partners, mothers of the other patients, had been allowed to stay, with their family. While my husband had been told to leave. And not come back onto the ward. the nurse took my dressing gown and footwear, prior tp my operation , back to the ward, they had wrapped my outdoor footwear, inside my dressing gown, this really was not hygienic.
