Their complaints were similar to those of surgeons, but the differences were interesting, reflecting their differing roles in the OR.
Room for storage was a special concern. One can imagine the usual weekly planning meetings taking place, with the representative of hospital management saying a few weeks into the rocess that money and space wwere running short and something would need to be made smaller.
Without special thought for the implications, storage room was shrunk or displaced to be more distant. Only later would the resulting delays and other costs become apparent. This became much easier to argue for at recent planning meetings I have attended.
