Posted by Felt disrespected (as ),
There was a nurse who treated my family and the elderly with disrespect, I believe on the basis that we were of a different culture. I felt extremely discriminated against. In my opinion she was extremely rude, xenophobic and spoke extremely slowly like we did not understand English, seemingly repeating words with spite. She appeared dismissive when we asked questions and also to slam the door in my face as I was passing the medical book to my grandparent who was sitting in the examining chair in the room and I felt she spoke down to us the entire time.
This completely destroys my image of Sydney Eye Hospital. The behaviour exhibited by this nurse caused a lot of discomfort and distress for us and I am extremely unamused and confronted by this experience.
