"Logan Hospital Emergency Department"

About: Logan Hospital / Accident & emergency

(as a relative),

I was driving my husband home following a blood test as my husband was unwell. My husband passed out in the car whilst I was on the Logan motorway, maybe 10 minutes from Logan Ed,

We arrived and I got my husband inside and told him to take a seat as he was having issues standing, I got to the front desk with admin, told her my husbands name and gave the Medicare details. The admin officer appeared to be listening to the ambulance officer talking to the triage nurse and asked me to spell my street name three times, then on the fourth time I was agitated and said it quite roughly in which the triage nurse told me to settle down. She then asked what was wrong with my husband that he could not come up to the counter so I explained it, to which the admin officer told me I should have called an ambulance, I then said well I was 10 minutes away do you think an ambulance could have got there sooner than I would have got there. The rest of the experience for my husband was painless.
