"Uncaring attitude "

About: Glasgow Royal Infirmary / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

The attitude of some nurses I came into contact with was very uncaring and it seemed obvious to me they hated the job and didnt want to be there. In fact one of them actually said this!

I was left alone at night when I was vomiting badly after my operation. The nurse on duty didn't seem interested. The nurse had a number of other patients to see to. I feel very disappointed about the lack of care I received from some nurses.

I am saddened by the very uncaring attitude I experienced. I don't feel I was treated with respect.

I would be very worried and scared if I ever had to go back to the royal infirmary as a patient!
