"An early morning in A & E........"
About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital Kent & Canterbury Hospital Canterbury CT1 3NG
i arrived at A & E at appx. 0100 with my wife and daughter attending.
I was put in a side room presumably to avoid cross-contamination.
I had an ECG and a blood sample taken by a nurse.
I did not see another nurse (let alone a Doctor) until 0815.
Is it common policy to abandon patients in this way, without an occasional check of their vital signs?
My daughter asked for a Doctor several times but was told that all the Doctors were elsewhere "on emergencies"
