My mother was found lying on the floor at 12 noon where she had been for six hours. the east Renfrewshire rapid response team were there very quickly and she was lifted up and put on a commode chair. NHs 24 were contacted and a doctor arrived at 4 pm who said she needed hospital admission. we waited for an ambulance till 230 am, An unacceptable wait for an 84 year old woman who was in need of medical attention.
The paramedic staff were excellent but the wait for an ambulance was totally unacceptable.
