"Personal hygiene"

About: Scarborough General Hospital

I visited the a&e department on Sunday the 28th february to have a bandage changed on an operation I had last week, the nurse that I had did not wash their hands nor wear gloves while doing this and on several occasions my partner and I saw the nurse cough into their hands and also wipe their nose on their hands. As you should know this could have caused infection to my wound and I think this is very poor hygiene
