Department Of Health
Waited 7 hours for paediatrician

Complaint / review text:
My two years old swallowed some tablets while playing with my neighbours kids. I immediately phoned the emergency line for an ambulance. The ambulance never came but i got another transport to the hospital. I arrived at 13:30. I waited with the baby at the reception for almost 2 hours before the nurses on duty could help us. As if that was not enough, the one doctor in charge examined him then put him on a drip before asking me to take him for xray. When i got back, there was no sign of the doctor. The nurse told me to wait for him in the cubicle. I waited almost 40 minutes and my feet were starting to get tired because there was no seat for me to sit down. I then walked out to the nurse and ask her about the doctor... No, she did not know. Then around 20:30 i approached another doctor and told him my story. He told me he has just started his shift and does not know much about me having to wait for so long. Then as i was talking to the doctor, the one nurse saw us and waited in a corner until i finish with the doctor. She approached me and she was very rude. I left the hospital without help because it was late at night and i still had to find taxis home. There is no work ethi
