xul Posted January 11 Report Share Posted January 11 N.S. woman dies after waiting 7 hours in hospital ER Quote He said they waited more than six hours in the emergency department before Allison was taken to a room inside the unit, which had no medical equipment. It would be another hour before she actually saw a doctor and received pain treatment. While having an X-ray taken, Allison’s condition worsened. Holthoff recounted how Allison screamed in pain while they tried to reposition her, and he tried to comfort her. Her eyes rolled back, he said, and the machines started beeping. “The next thing I hear was, ‘code blue, code blue in the X-ray’ in the PA system and from then on pretty quick that room was full of people,” he said. So where were these people in the first 6 or 7 hours? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
