I had a cannula in my left arm and was told by a nurse that it had to be changed, he was teaching another nurse how to do it. As he instructed the nurse he was looking for the best place to insert the cannula which was on top of my right hand. I requested not to as I had previously had a painful experience, he persisted and gave the nurse instruction to carry on. I asked him again why he is so persistent he answered, because I can. I felt intimidated ! During the night the pain became so bad that I asked for the cannula to be removed which was done.
On discharge, in my opinion he made an insulting remark to other people in the room about me and my wife, trying to be funny.
