Attended the emergency department but was a GP expected patient. Waited in the waiting room for 6 hours, while A&E patients were being seen well before me.
I felt left to wait. Not seen by triage nurse. Thought I was getting worse. Asked to speak to a senior nurse and was told be grateful that you are not an ortho patient, you would be longer. This is surely not the way to treat patients, no matter what’s wrong with them.
This waiting room felt so unsafe. I’m surprised this hospital doesn’t have more deaths or incidents related to waiting. Accident waiting to happen.
