"Bad attitude from staff"

My friend was taken in with a bad case of diverticulitis and while I was visiting she said she needed a bedpan - I offered to go and ask a nurse for one. I went to nurses station and waited while the two nurses carried on their discussion, eventually I managed to ask for the bedpan and said she needed it quite quickly. The nurse looked me up and down and said "yes, in a minute" , not in a very nice tone. My friend waited until another nurse? In a dark blue uniform came and we told her we were waiting for a bedpan and she dealt with the situation. I must say I did not like the way the nurse spoke to me or the fact that she did not see any urgency in supplying the bedpan although my friend had liquid diarrhoea.
