8.30am - scheduled time of surgery.
it's now 8.45am.
patient on the operating table.......anaesthetist ready to start......surgeon waiting in earnest.....
and, nurses just started preparing her instruments.
time of actual start of surgery - 8.55am.
it's days like this (& there are many of late) that makes me dread coming to work.
i suppose it could be worse - i could be dealing with a govt dept.
