"a&e disgrace"

About: Darent Valley Hospital / Accident and emergency

My son went to A&E about 1pm on saturday.He was in real pain.At 5pm they did a scan . At 11.3opm he is still waiting for the result.he has to sit in a chair and everyone completly ignores him.no food or drink offered.when he asked what is happening , they all say the same thing "ask him or her". It's a complete disgrace.
