I recently had a day procedure at Osborne Park Hospital. Nursing staff and support staff were great, helpful and took good care of me. Thanks all. My only disappointment was that I wish the consultant or his registrar came to see me after surgery to let me know how the procedure went. Instead, I was given a piece of paper with the results of the procedure and was told to make another appointment for the tests that were done by nursing staff. Though the registrar did see me before the procedure it would have been good to have seen me after too. I realize doctors are busy, however, what is a standard procedure for them might be a big thing to a patient. So checking on them after surgery would have been caring or even a follow-up phone call the next day would have been appropriate. Thanks.
