my partner was coming into this hospital via ambulance due to minor chest pains and an overdose. During this time we waited 20 minutes to be put in a room, we had the paramedic checking my partners obs in the corridor whilst waiting for a nurse to collect him. Which then we were left for a further 30 minutes in a room that had no sheet on the bed. And for a doctor to come in and ask for any, then after waiting for that 30 minutes a nurse came in and done an ECG to be told a doctor would look at his ECG and get back to him. Totally forgetting about his overdose. We where then left in a dirty horrible waiting area with sticky mess on the floor. After waiting two hours i went to speak to a nurse which then told us we had 7 people ahead of us. So finally my partners patience ran thin and he discharged himself. Absolutely disgraceful! My partner is still in pain and yet no one even offered him a paracetamol!
