I went to hand clinic for surgery recently.
The doctor is great, nurses were great really trying to help. But I believe you have too many people. I have to have finger surgery asap. But that day they said I shouldn’t eat. I cancelled meetings that day due to my surgery. My partner had to cancel their business trip. But nothing happened that day. I had to come back in a few days time.
This particular injury affects my wellbeing and mental health. I can’t do much. I can’t drive and can’t do so many things. I have found it really stressful especially when I am facing additional stress, it becomes really hard to handle. I spent all day watching COVID news while waiting for surgery with so many other people. I don’t think that this should be happening in a hospital environment especially with COVID.
The staff are super polite and super nice. I feel they are trying to do their best but they could not speed up the surgery process.
