My mother was admitted after suffering a stroke and spent a total of 9 and a half hours sitting in the main waiting room. She saw the triage nurse who said she had to see a medic as she had been GP advised, and was not admitted into A&E. After seeing triage at approx 1830 she did not see anyone until a medic became available at 2245. My mother then waited till 0230 to be assigned a bed, and once she had got ready was told not to get into bed as they were moving her. She then spent the night on ward 3 and was then moved at 0400 the next morning to ward six, how stupid is that? Beds may be of a premium but to move people at the time of the night is ridiculous. By the way my mother is 78 years old and sitting in A&E reception was pretty poor.
