What I liked
I attended daycare for an knee arthroscopy at noon on Dec 3. The nursing staff were under pressure and, from what I have been told, short-numbered. In spite of the intense pressure they were under and the huge degree of concentration they were subjected to the two nurses were wonderful. They kept up a cheery outlook, were helpful and attentive and I thought they were fantastic.
I doubt whether many people would have been able to maintain 100% accuracy in those circumstances and, if any monor discrepancies occurred, they will be the fault of those allocating manpower and not of those lovely nurses.
I personally believe that the number of staff should have been twice that of the number on duty and, if hospital staff believe they can get away with running a department with so few staff and not experience errors, they are very much mistaken.
My heart went out to those brilliant, dedicated and caring nurses.
What could be improved
