About: Prince of Wales Hospital / Emergency Department Prince of Wales Hospital Emergency Department Randwick 2031

I attended the Prince of Wales ED with an acute sharp pain in my abdomen. I had to get out of there before I could be examined because it seems the hospital does not enforce mask-wearing in the emergency department waiting room, despite the COVID risk! It appeared half the patients waiting were not wearing masks, some even coughing their lungs out. This is so unacceptable, in my opinion.
Also, I felt the ED is seriously understaffed. It seems it doesn't matter how much pain you are in, you will be made to wait for 3 to 4 hours. Another person was bleeding from their nose everywhere in the waiting room for over 1 hour, no one attended to them.
