Perhaps you should take a course in effective communication for beginners. Despite popular belief, nurses cannot see into your mind when you suddenly decide that you want to change the surgery at the last minute. You just may have to 'gasp' descend from your pedestal to converse with the lowly nursing staff.
It also helps when you inform all the OR team, not just your anesthetic buddies. Because believe it or not we work in the operating team too, though you may have to pull your head out of your ass long enough to notice our presence....yep we're the one's who ensure that you have the necessary instruments and equipment to do your operation.
Oh and because your an ******* don't ever expect me to go out of my way for you again. As the saying goes, you've just shat in your own nest...
Definitely report this. As soon as you get Risk Management involved, an investigation can be conducted. The last thing the hospital wants is a lawsuit!!! Always CYA (cover your ass) with documentation...
