Attended A&E today with my husband, care by nurses second to none, kept informed at all times, seen by a doctor very brief history taken & waiting for blood results, same doctor informed my husband of his diagnosis, gave him antibiotics & told him he could go home., I asked for his venflon on to be removed & the doctor took a paper towel that is normally used to dry your hands, removed the venflon & told him to press on the site with the paper towel, we had to ask for some tape. This doctor did not wash his hands, wear gloves or use an appropriate dressing.
