I visited minor injuries last night after falling and cutting my head open. I was bleeding quite a lot feeling dizzy and extremely sick.. The receptionist was extremely blunt to my husband on the phone and on arrival to the department..when I was seen by the nurse they extremely uncaring cold and abrupt..I remained calm and polite throughout my consultation even when they scrubbed at my wound appearing to be unaware or unfeeling to me wincing and crying as they carried out their 'care' procedure.
I am very aware that the nurses are under pressure as I was a nurse myself, and so would not of attended hospital unless I felt necessary ' I am not a time waster'
My wound resulted in being glued as I had sustained quite a considerable cut and so feel I was right to go to minor injuries but unfortunately due to my care I certainly will not attend by choice the Samuel Johnson again ! Extremely poor patient care .
