"The nurses and doctors I saw seemed to have no empathy (Royal Adelaide Hospital)"

About: Royal Adelaide Hospital

(as the patient),

I had a horrible condition that affected my mouth. It was the most painful experience of my life and I looked horrible. I had been crying day after day and almost suicidal. I was in the RAH (Royal Adelaide Hospital) while they tried to figure out what it was. The nurses and doctors I saw seemed to have no empathy at all, I felt like an inanimate object. The worst part was a doctor brought in a whole group of med students to stare at me without even asking if I was okay with it - which I wasn't! I was at my all time lowest, and having these strangers all glaring at me was horrible: -( I left with a very negative impression of the RAH. I think the employees I saw there really need to imagine being in their patients shoes and try to make their stay a nice one.
