"Toilet doors need to be looked at to ensure people do not get knocked into"

About: Gartnavel Royal Hospital / General Psychiatry

(as the patient),

At a recent visit to the Gartnaval hospital I went to the toilet whilst I was waiting for my carer.

There are two sets of doors into and out of the toilets. As I was coming out of the toilets I went through the inner door and was expecting to have to push the outer door open to go out into the main hospital area. Instead, the door opened inwards as a nurse came through from the other direction and knocked into me almost knocking me over.

The nurse was very apologetic and came out of the toilets with me to make sure I was alright. I was fine but I think the doors need to be looked at to ensure people do not get knocked into.
