"Nurse sneezed in her hand then handled my tablets"

About: London Road Community Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

i went to the Derby Royal A&E last night...what a place! a nurse full of cold sneezed into her hand then handled my tablets then wiped snot on her hand as she prepared to do a blood test. despite posters on hand hygeine and sanitisers everywhere! I was disgusted and discharged myself. I found some of the staff ignorant and abrupt towards me. After this experience I would rather bear the pain than go there again.
