"Waiting time at Mater Public Emergency (Brisbane)."

About: Mater Adult Hospital / Emergency Department

(as a relative),

Wife fell and knocked herself out in the middle of the night and starting convulsing. Once she came round took her to mater public emergency at around 1am. It took 1.5hrs before we actually got a bed and someone examined her. They then said they will have to do a scan before they release her. 7 hrs later scan was done. 3hrs later finally released. That is just not good enough, I think if it had been serious after 10hrs she could have been dead. My mistake for going to public in middle of night instead of private.
