"Rude nurses"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as a staff member),

I am a temporary staff covering for a shift at ESH. My first day here I asked the nurses in the eye department regarding some directions. Even though I was wearing my badge, one of the nurses infront of all the patients rudely told me 'What do you want? '

Seeing this attitude, I told her sorry to disturb you and walked away. Saw another nurse and got the same response.

Any how, in my experience, some of the nurses are very ruse at ESH and I definitely did not enjoy my time working there!
