"problems at the dialysis Unit"

About: Ninewells Hospital / Nephrology

(as a relative),

Ongoing ROWDY STAFF. Visiting my father in this unit was like sitting in the front seats of a circus. Some of the staff I saw were in my opinion acting in a disgraceful and unprofessional manner. It felt like these staff members had no regard whatever for patients in the ward and carried on with their raucous behaviour.
