"Bugs in Aberdeen Royal Infimary - the 6 legged kind"

About: Aberdeen Royal Infirmary

(as the patient),

When staying in ward 44 in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, I repeatedly told the nurse about the bugs running around under the beds and in the toilets but was ignored.

On one occasion one nurse joked about it, saying they are part of the furniture. Disgrace!
