Patients transferred to the Royal in Glasgow as the RAH runs out of beds
The winter toll is taking full effect on the RAH in Paisley countless people attending with broken bones after falling in the snow and ice are facing hours of waiting, its that bad that there isn’t enough operating hours in the day to cope with patient demand never before has Paisley RAH seen scenes this bad.
Tonight i saw for my self the full extent of whats going on behing the scenes as i spent 9 hours at accident and emergency and here is a personal senario i saw for myself tonight.
patient arrives at A&E at before 6pm
seen by doctors, diagnosed and being admited and left on trolley before 7pm
bed finaly got at nearly 2am after 7 hours on a hospital trolley and all this on a pensioner of nearly 90
