"The doctors and nurses were quick on..."

About: Chelsea & Westminster Hospital

What I liked

The doctors and nurses were quick on taking care of my wounds and very respectful.

What could be improved

The A&E had some work being done on one of the rooms while seeing patients.

I had a motorcycle accident and an open wound and the whole space was filthy. The doctor that was stitching my leg and cleaning it had the door to the room open (even though I did ask multiple times for the doors to be closed) and on the outside there were people working on dry walls. There were other doctors coming in and out of the room all the time and even propping the door open.

That is very scary when in my opinion that room should be super clean (it's an operating theater) and the doctor is cleaning and stitching a wound. I really hope I do not get an infection as if I do I will probably seek some legal advice.
