It highlights a number of examples of patients left waiting for to be treated at A&E units.
- A patient with chest pain having a cardiac arrest whilst being seen in the eye examination room (as there was no room in the resuscitation bay)
- No space in the resuscitation bay to accommodate a baby having a severe seizure
- Waits for a ward bed of 24-36 hours are now common, and at least one patient spent a full 3 days in a Welsh Emergency Department.
