"My op"

About: Bassetlaw Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had an absolutely awful experience on St Ledger ward, I felt I would have been better off going home straight after my operation!

Had to have my own painkillers after my op, which I feel was due to incompetant nursing! 2 paracetamol after a big op!

Then I was asked what I had had done? Then on leaving, I was asked whether I had dressings!!

I found it awful, still angry now!

Also I asked a nurse what did the surgeon do, they looked at notes and said they didn't know, that they couldn't read it!!
