As reported by some Britain A&E doctors, hospitals are becoming dangerously overcrowded and up to 500 patients died last year as a result of the pain they suffered. More than 350 deaths are due to a not enough quick diagnosis or treatment and another 150 were not admitted beacuse of bed shortages.
“It’s sobering that up to 500 patients a year die because too many of our emergency departments are too often overcrowded. It’s a cogent reminder to the people who run the NHS that overcrowded emergency departments are just unacceptable and dangerous,” said Dr Clifford Mann, president of the College of Emergency Medicine.
According to Dr Mann’s opinion, about 3.5 million patients who turned up at an A&E were at increased risk of death.
