I had my gallbladder removed and when it was time to be discharged, there was a lot of confusion. The nurse on duty in the morning didn’t prepare me for discharge (didn’t remove the port) although they knew I was to go home. In fact, it was my understanding that there were 3 of us all being discharged in the same ward and we all were kept waiting. When the shift changed, we waited again and the next nurse did prep us, but was quite surprised how long we had waited and that the previous nurse hadn’t done so.
