About: Wythenshawe Hospital

I went to the hospital with my friend, the nurse that was booking her in was very rude and disrespectful. She made us both feel uncomfortable and put on the spot, she didn't have very good communication skills and lacked allot of patience. She looked like she couldn't be bothered, bored and properly wanted her shift to end. Yes I understand nurses do allot and I have allot of respect for them. But personally I don't think this nurse should be a nurse. She also spoke very loud and everyone in the waiting area could hear what was wrong with people she was booking in. I think this breaks peoples confidentiality and is not expectable! And from this experience if i ever became ill or one of my family member did I would not choose to come to this hospital.
