Clumsy Nurse-Observation at the ER

So yesteday, while in triage at the walk in care clinic at the ER, the nurse there drops the patient bracelets all over the floor, picks them up off the floor to thro them out, and then proceeds to tie one on me without washing her hands first.  I pointed that out to her, she got annoyed.  Then, as i'm waiting for the dr in the tiny room they stuffed me in, i can still hear ALL the patients coming in, and giving their health history..isn't that a violation of HIPPA, for me to able to hear what is going on with other people and their health problems? Next, she was shooting the ear pieces from the ear thermometer all over the floor, and not picking them up-she was aiming for the trash can 5feet away.   Then she proceeded to let the wrong patients in the doors a few times, after the nurse in charge already told someone else they were next.....this was all observed in 45mins.  No wonder this place got bad marks from the Dept of Health for patient satisfaction.
