"Emergency admission"

About: St James's University Hospital

My husband aged 75 was admitted on Sunday 28 December 2014 and was treated with the utmost respect and care. He was admitted to Ward 47 following assessment in A&E for 3 days and received excellent care. My husband has several medical conditions and attends various clinics at St James. The care he receives is excellent. In my observations many people at A&E do not appear to be an 'Emergency'. It must be very frustrating for the staff who work under tremendous pressure. Thank you
