What I liked
The accident and emergency area, and all wards I have been admitted to were exceptionally clean.
What could be improved
I have been admitted to the BRI numerous times in the past as I used to self harm. However due to me requiring both emergency and ongoing treatments for my self inflicted wounds, I do not feel I was treated well. I was told by a nurse in accident and emergency that i was a very stupid person, and that I should not be wasting medical staff time. I feel I must express that I only ever visited A&E out of absolute necessity, i.e I once needed a 3 unit blood transfusion, and 72 stitches. I haven't ever abused the NHS, and dont feel this doctors and nurses had any right to judge me. I feel I was treated as a second class patient.
