Daily Rant&Rave: Privacy for patients, please

RAVE For the kindness of strangers who were so thoughtful when a cyclist in our group took a tumble. One passer-by in a truck stopped and gave us his first aid kit, and another couple gave the cyclist and bike a ride to the Black Diamond Bakery to await a friend for a ride home.

RANT To the nurses having open conversations about patients in a crowded waiting room several times while we waited over an hour for an appointment, including discussing test results with the patients right next to us. There should be rules against that to protect patient privacy.
