"Generally fine. some really good. some minor..."

About: Watford General Hospital

Arrived at a&e with cut hand. Reception were friendly and updated my details. Wait of 40mins to triage which was fine. Friendly nurse who seemed nervous but double checked to make sure she was correct with everything. ENP sent me for xray and then dressed the wound well and explained at home care. Whole care took 2 hours. However curtains did not fully cover the minors bays although there was no need to with my injury,, radiologist did not wear gloves when taking off or putting on dressing. Staff kept coming in and out of bays where patients were without asking. Weird that saline was in lots of little Packets. Whole area although clean, looked tired. Overall ok and care was fine
