Reduce waiting times and walk outs, for this overcrowded Paediatric Emergency Department
This petition had 95 supporters
We are a group pf parents fed up with the long waiting times at the Women's and Children's Hospital in Adelaide South Australia, which only has 2 rostered doctors working the A.M shifts. This means very long wait times up to 7-8 hours to be seen by a doctor. This causes parents and young children to walk out in frustration at not being seen early enough and of course the young patients to endure more pain and agony whilst waiting and not being diagnosed and treated by a doctor.
The South Australian government has not approved more than two doctors on these shifts, even with letters that have been written to local Members of Parliament, but with an increasing population, we believe its time for our state government to reconsider, for our children's health sake and for the medical staff who work tirelessly to meet the demands of the often and ever increasing busy periods.
