"Patient dignity"

About: King George Hospital

I do not appreciate a doctor opening the curtain to the cubicle in A&E while I am lying on a trolley in a state of undress from the waist down, with no cover over me, leaving the curtain open while they look for equipment, then leaves the cubicle without closing the curtain after them.

They were not the doctor treating me.

They did this twice with no apology to me, they just totally ignored me.
