I went to A&E as I had a fall, whilst I was waiting I saw both doctors and nurses walking in and out of rooms whilst seeing patients with gloves on so they can get more equipment, completely unhygienic.
After I was treated, I was sitting in the waiting area to be seen again and I heard a few people being discharged within the waiting area, again completely confidential and then this happened to me, nurse came over went through all my notes and said I was free to go.
I was shocked at the lack of hygiene and confidentiality within the setting as this is what gets drummed into every health professional.
