In my opinion, the Pathwest Collection Clinic at Rockingham Hospital is severely understaffed and in blatant need of greater support/funding/focus from upper management.
I believe the patient backlog occurring at Rockingham isn’t just putting added stress on staff and patients alike, in my opinion, it’s also a health risk during our current COVID-19 climate.
I attended the clinic in the morning for a routine blood collection and when I was still in the queue one and a half hours later, there were so many people waiting that they were spilling out the doors and down the corridors, I felt making it almost impossible to adhere to adequate social distancing practices.
In my opinion, if you don’t address the staffing shortages ASAP, I would bet my bottom dollar that you’ll soon have staff walking off the job.
