"staff patient confidentiality poir"

About: St James's University Hospital

Anything else?

I was an inpatient on a respiratory ward over the christmas period and was appalled to hear a nurse discussing my care with another patient. I'm not a medic but persume this is not acceptable? It was hushed wispers so i only heard the basics so understand the potential to mishear is high hence why no official complaint sent. It was just humiliating and affected the rest of my stay.
