One doctor at Guinebor 2 Hospital shares how challenging it is to be faced with a sick patient, and have no bed to admit them to.
“What do I do?” he asks.
“Do I keep them on the floor in the emergency department, do I send them home knowing that I am not able to give them the level of care that they need, or do I search around the wards trying to find someone I can send home so that I can offer them a bed?”
