"Poor treatment of patient"

My parent was at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (SCGH) for chronic pain and a herniated disc. I felt the registrar at the emergency department (ED) that was looking at my parent was extremely rude, definitely talked in a condescending tone to my parent about the pain and how it must be difficult for them. You could clearly see that my parent was in extreme pain and yet the registrar asked if my parent could walk and that they may be sent home with nothing more than simple pain meds when they have proven to not work on my parent's pain.
The registrar was also talking loudly about how they couldn't wait to go on their break and about cupcakes lasting more than 3 days when there were, I felt, clearly other patients that had not yet been seen that were, I believe, in pain. This would not help the patients feel that they are going to be taken care of well.
The nurses, on the other hand, were amazing and they had no faults at all.
