About: Good Hope Hospital

My partner came into A&E and was directed into the majors because he was confused and not well due to an infection, he was seen promptly and most of the staff were professional. The only problem I had was a staff member in the majors was extremely rude and unprofessional in which this staff member snapped at him and looked at my partner like he was disgusting. It shouldn't have happened, I can understand that in this work environment staff members can get stressed but it was completely uncalled for and every one should be treated equally and this staff member shouldn't judge people on the way they look it is disgusting behaviour.
