"an embarrassment to the proffession"

About: Croydon University Hospital

being a nurse myself I had certain expectations of our recent experience in CUH. I found the nurses to be uncaring, work without competence and most definitely have no idea about communication. not one nurse introduced themselves, and they gave us no courage in what they did, seeming unsure and uncaring at all times. I would not recommend the unit we were in to anyone and I pray and hope the other wards are much better than DSU.
