As a health care professional I was appalled and disappointed when visiting a relative in Admission Unit 2 at the Victoria hospital, Kirkcaldy. Sitting in the four bedded bay to overhear a doctor tell another patient she was dying and the only option was palliative care. No curtains were drawn for privacy. This was done in front of the other patients. I felt this was disrespectful to the patient and their family. I don't supposed this doctor would have been pleased if this was a member of his family. Where was the compassion and empathy?
