"Dignity and respect"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

Matron told a doctor off who was about to check my mums condition in front of everyone. The matron in all fairness aplogised to my mum.Also saw an elderly lady on a trolley bed in her underwear! All a bit callamitous really as doctor kept walking off leaving us standing there! We were then told to go to Lister ward...well what can I say...inadequate waiting area and had to sit on floor with doctors and nurses walking past and not batting an eyelid which says a lot. I do understand Hospital has a huge cattachment area but seems to me Medway Hospital has a mountain to climb
