"The rude nurse"

About: Barnet Hospital / Accident and emergency Chase Farm Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

It was the first time that I had to go the emergency hospital. I had only minor injury and I was prepared to wait for 2 and a half hours. However, I got a little irritated in the end. On the top of that, I thought one of the nurses was extremely rude to me. She called me nasty, a person with attitude. I think this happened because when she was telling me that she was going to prescribe me antibiotics, I said that I was recently on strong antibiotics as I had a huge problem with my joints. By that I wanted to say that it was only recently and I wanted to discuss if there was any other option for me. The nurse then said to me, “I am not interested and if you want to die I am quite happy for you.” Also, she said to me that if I do not stop she would not treat me. Well done the nurse! I am going to complain officially about her. If anything again happens to me I definitely will not go to the same particular hospital but I just do not want her to do it to someone again.
