"A & E"
About: Princess Royal University Hospital (Orpington) Princess Royal University Hospital (Orpington) Orpington BR6 8ND
My son attended A & E on Monday the 28 April 2014 just after lunch, I came to meet him and my father their at 5.30pm. He had been seen had needle in his arm from blood test etc and was told by a doctor 1.5 hours ago they would come and speak to him about the results. When we asked the receptionist for an update she spoke with a nurse who then began shouting about how much she had to do and it was not her problem, when I spoke to the nurse she then started shouting at me with the receptionist being rude and talking about our business straight across a packed waiting room. They were un professional and I was told to go to another department and speak with the sister who within minutes tracked down the doctor. The doctor came to speak to us in the waiting room so everyone again could hear all my sons business, have you people never heard of personal and confidential information. Staff were unprofessional and had empathy to anyone in A & E, when the doctor said we could go my son had to ask him to remove the needle from his arm, he told us to ask the nurse and I replied she had told me she is not interested and too busy to do it. Poor poor service.
