"Staff making silly noises and swearing"

About: Heartlands Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a relative),

Whilst waiting in the Physio waiting area recently I was not impressed to see two members of staff, either porters or maintenance walk into the area making silly noises then walk back out still making silly noises then swearing whilst they were talking about building 41, they were heard to say a swear word at least twice.
