My adult daughter was feeling unwell and went to see her GP, who was concerned and referred her immediately to the ED to get some tests done that the GP felt could not wait. We arrived at the ED at 5pm and she was finally seen by a doctor at 11:15pm. In the meantime, we racked up over $30 in car parking fees while sitting in a freezing emergency department. We were still sitting there at 12:14am while she had further tests and waited for a decision about whether they were going to keep her in or not. She’s sick, she’s tired and she’s emotional and she was forced to sit in a chair in a freezing emergency room when she should be in a bed. Shame on you hospital, health system, government - worse than third world conditions - I pay my taxes, I have health insurance and it doesn’t count for anything.
