"Maple Suite"

About: King George Hospital

I received appalling and rude remark from a nurse. Staff should not work there if they are not able to cope with the delivery of service. I was the told by the nurse, I am too busy and did not offer to explain the relatively medication I was given. I was told by them "Just take it" without explaining the purpose in first instance. The nurse failed to deliver dignity, respect not patient confidentiality. When called into, they did not give privacy required, given the type of 'service'. I felt very uncomfortable and the discussion was discussed in the corridor when patients entering and exiting the maple suite. This is an appalling standard and will never come here again.
