Re: Probably worse than you can imagine

Nothing about hospitals surprises me any more. I just had a cardiac resynchronisation/defibrillator installed. The anaesthetising nurse forgot to top up the anaesthetic so when the surgeon made the inisions and installed the device I felt everything! Post op I was offered panadol osteo (paracetamol) for pain relief and ended up having a shouting match with a nurse who told me it was illegal to take my regular meds, such as ivabradine prescribed by my cardiologist. The reason given was that the hospital pharmacist had never heard of ivabradine and anyway they don't approve of over-the-counter herbal medicines.

Security? I'd be surprised if the managed to find their own arse with both hands.
