"rude staff"

About: Leeds General Infirmary

In PICU if doctors or nurses have cold n caugh, they are allow to work with children and they don't have fear of spreading infections but if any parent got cold and caugh, staff have problem and tell the parent to not to see their child. How is this possible, as a parent if my child is in ICU I really want to see him/her.in that case doctors and nurses shouldn't working when they got cold/flu. staff is really rude and not involving parents in relation to their child's care. NHS should improve their services.
