"Only 1 nurse dealing with all patients"

initially 1-1.5 hr wait with 2 nurses....after 1.5 hr wait and never actually seeing a patient being called in, I enquired as to how much up the line I had moved....nothing in 1.5 hrs!! Apparently only 1 nurse was working ( the other was in a meeting) I said it was misleading to write on the board that 2 nurses were working...this was subsequently changed to 1 nurse and a 4 hr wait! I was told that is should be 3 nurses at any one time but at 2pm on a Thursday afternoon it was only 1....dreadful service, unhelpful staff and misleading information.
