My child had a problem with their shoulder so went to the Maroondah Hospital. The nurses were brilliant as were the sonographer and ultrasound person.
But the doctor giving the injection seemed to be pushing their own preference of not having an anaesthetic. While he did explain the option of having an anaesthetic, he seemed to indicate that it was pointless to have an injection to numb the area for another injection.
My child was very upset and felt pressured to not have the anaesthetic. I just want the doctor to be made aware that it is not his decision and he needs to respect the patient's decision.
