"Patients and relatives"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

Anything else?

I have been observing the relationship between patients, relatives and staff. One thing that strikes me is that staff have to put up with bad behaviour, cheek. Backchat and general rudeness from them...when will the nhs stop rewarding this behaviour?
