Attended day surgery with my 4 year old child for a minor operation. A play room / paediatric waiting room was available but it was very overcrowded, both in terms or number of people in it and with the amount of toys. Items on floor causing trip hazard.
Able to go through for anaesthetic with my child and was then directed back to the playroom to wait. Eventually, after about an hour, a staff member came in and asked where I had been because my child was back on the ward and had been asking for me.
It emerged that I had been directed to the wrong area to wait and so my child had the anxiety of no parent being there when they returned from theatre.
