About: Arrowe Park Hospital Arrowe Park Hospital Wirral CH49 5PE
On 10/03/2015 at approx. 20.00 hrs my partners 79 yr old father was admitted to Arrow Park A&E by Ambulance after collapsing and losing consciousness. He was put in a bed in A&E and ignored. After 35 minutes he had not received triage let alone treatment or seen a doctor. My partner sat and waited whilst they discussed Eastenders, what they had done over the weekend, how their respective families were not overrun with patients or paperwork. After 35 minutes she went and asked if her father could be discharged as he was now conscious and coherent. The Nurses then jumped into action, making all sorts of excuses, triage was done , by a nurse who had done a 13 hr shift and a Doctor arrived very quickly once summoned. What would the TV / Newspaper headlines be if he had had a heart attack and died whilst the Arrow Park A&E staff chatted about tv programmes?
