I had a fall and seriously injured my hand one night a few months ago.
An ambulance brought me to the ER at Liverpool Hospital.
A temporary dressing was applied and IV antibiotics and tetanus injection were given.
It was decided that Fairfield Hospital Hand Clinic would be best suited to treat the injury and appointment was made for Fairfield the next morning.
My grievance was that the ER staff at Liverpool did not remove, or advise to remove, a wedding ring on the night of the injury. By the following morning, my fingers had swollen and the wedding ring was very tight. Fairfield Theatre staff obviously had a tough job in removing it because my ring finger has still not returned to previous flexibility.
