Crowd control After having spent an evening in a relatively quiet A&E recently with my grandmother I reckon these researchers deserve all the help they can get:
Overcrowding in Accident and Emergency departments: a survey.
We are carrying out a survey into the experiences of patients and
relatives/significant others of long waiting periods in Accident &
Emergency units prior to admission to hospital.
We would like to carry out interviews with people who have first hand knowledge of the experience.
We are both lecturers in nursing and are carrying out this research in order to identify the effects of these waiting times on you as an individual and how waiting periods might be made more tolerable for patients and relatives/significant others.
