"treatment in a@e"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

I went to a@e on 2nd December with a head injury and a cut to the corner of the eye a nurse cleaned the wound and said she did not know how to apply steri strips to my face she asked a male nurse to do it and he said no she had to learn. After several attempts she put them on.now I have a tuck to the corner of my eye next to the scar because they were put on wrong I am really disappointed about this after all its my face and is noticeable.
