"I feel day surgery procedures ..."

About: Frenchay Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I feel day surgery procedures are very poor regarding hygene. I was not asked if I had bathed that day or drank and ate anything. Theatre staff (aneathatist) left theatre to come and talk to me in the waiting area and then returned to theatre. When gowned for theatre waited with people accompanying other patients dressed in outside clothes. I consequently had an inefection for which I needed to be treated. I was told to remove all dressings myself and saw the hospital 8 days later.

What could be improved
