My 92-year-old gran had an eye injection earlier in the day and has had a bad reaction in one eye. She is very stoic and I know when she complains it must be serious! She is in a lot of pain and can't open her eye. We decided to come up to ED because she said it feels very different to every other time she's had the injection and that it feels like there's a foreign body in there. She is flushed and very uncomfortable. ED is all but completely empty. We waited about an hour in the waiting room and were then shown to the room with a slit lamp in it. Gran still in a lot of pain and her eye now oozing something. We are then left alone again for another hour with no explanation. The ED is deserted. I cannot see or hear one other patient. We were finally told "you're next" - that was half an hour ago. Still no sign of anyone. Poor gran is stiff and tired. Wish us luck that they'll turn up eventually! Maybe there's only one doctor? ? Maybe they've gone for dinner? ?
