I arrived 12. 30am by ambo. 1am one registered nurse and doctor look at holiday pics for 10mins. The only staff I saw. No signs to toilets. No pillow or blanket offered while I waited patiently and quietly. 2am I was weary. Nurse took vitals. Short curt responses from me about why I was there. Not rude or abusive to nurse though. Nurse said are you inpatient? I said I'm tired is all. 3am I go online to book appt with my GP. My beef? ...3 admin staff sat on their backsides and could have given me info about toilets and that staff were busy 'tonight'. ED staff should let admin know non-emergency patients, 3hr waiting should go to their GP. ...Medical staff wonder why people get annoyed waiting. I feel FSH not organised at all. Give paramedics their own bays to assist people, as we get clarity and are informed of what's going on.... I believe this is a waste of tax payers money.
