What I liked
After a road traffic accident in April 2010 I spent the first 8 days in ICU,having one to one nursing care, and was kept heavily sedated. I then spent a further 3 weeks in ward 17, and have only praise for all staff, from Consultants to cleaners. Even the food was palatable, and cannot fault anyone.
What could be improved
When I returned at the end of September for my knee arthroscopy surgery, I asked for a regional anaesthetic, but was refused., In recovery afterwards, I could not get my breath, and believed at the time I had a panic attack, but now believe that the anaesthetist had not let the muscle relaxer wear off.
All Praise to my surgeon for a good job done
