Hospitals Suck

Toddler B went in for a procedure for his teeth yesterday (another issue from antibiotics during pregnancy). He had a general anaesthetic. First of all, they dont make an unflavoured anaesthetic for children - its all strawberry, chocolate or pineapple flavoured. All childrens face masks are imbued with scent as well.

So today I have a child getting over a GA and having a massive reaction to the overdose of salicylates in the scented masks etc.

Also in recovery, do they cater for children with food allergies?? Of course not!! I was prepared and took our own food, but nurses kept insisting he ate one of their icy poles. Umm no - he's allergic. I was starting to feel like a broken record.
