When you feel like you are going to pass out, every bone in your body is aching, a 2 hour wait so far is a long time.
In addition to this, it appears that all people attending are not dealing well and having to sit on the hard seats in the waiting room for close to 3 hours was very uncomfortable. I also observed many other people slumped over waiting to be seen I understand the reason for the wait, but unfortunately it doesn't help when when you're feeling very ill.
A suggestion for waiting patients would be to perhaps have some bean bags or day beds where people can make themselves more comfortable while they wait which is apparently a common occurrence. If the hospital would accept them I would be happy to donate some bean bags which I am sure would be appreciated by patients as there were many mothers nursing restless babies while I was there.
