"no medical treatment available, staff just chat"

I have never in my life been to such an excuse for a hospital. On arriving with my very shy husband, we were greeted by two 'receptionists' one after the other confirming the same details. For the four hours we waited, I counted 6 staff, standing at the entrance, including the nurse responsible for triage, using the computers to google and show each other images and chat and laugh.
Of course this hospital is useless, there are no trained medical staff. All of the funds are used in useless staff who feel it is their entitlement to stand around. This hospital shouldn't be open and I laugh at the irony that some PALS complaint officer receives a tax funded pay packet to write a very brief 'sorry' message on this review board. Outrageous. This hospital should be shut down and a new hospital employing qualified, medical staff should be built. It never will though, for now we are paying privately for our medical treatment.
