My partner was having a scan and she is nervous of hospitals.
The person who called her in asked I remain in the waiting room.
My partner asked if I could come with her as she is nervous.
The staff member visibly rolled their eyes, huffed and then turned away and led us in.
The impression they gave was that there was a problem with me accompanying my partner into the room.
The rest of the appointment went well. The person performing the scan was not the same as who had called us in. They were friendly and professional.
The other staff member could learn from them!
It should be noted that we are a same sex couple, and my partner referred to me as being her partner. I hope that the staff member in question was just having a bad day and their reaction was not due to us being a same sex couple.
