Has anyone ever had an abdominal drain on a weekend? My dad was only diagnosed a month or so ago if that and needs his second drain already.
Both times he’s been put forward/I’ve called it’s been a Thursday evening/Friday morning and he’s been admitted into hospital until the drain can be done on a Monday. He’s struggling to breathe with lack of abdomen space and it’s driving me crazy they don’t do them on weekends (I know it’s due to lack of staff in case of a complication etc) as in my opinion healthcare should be 24/7, not Monday-Friday!
I’m curious if this is all hospitals, or if it’s specific to ours. Hardly seems right #angry
