"i was sent home from day surgery ..."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i was sent home from day surgery when it was obvious that i was in no fit state to do so the pain relief was minimal and subsequently needed the emergengy doctor 2 days later to prescribe stronger pain killers and antibiotics for infection surely prompt after care and another day with trained staff could have prevented this

What could be improved

policies need to be reviewed

Anything else?

the element of care seems to have disappeared only to be replaced by numbers and tagets
