Thank God, have not had a necessity to go to an emergency department. However, I have heard quite a number of horror stories about emergency departments in public hospitals, e.g. extremely long queues, etc.
As I hold a private hospital cover, can I be admitted to an emergency department in a private hospital? And where can I find the list of the emergency departments in my area (Sydney)?
Do you guys have an experience of being admitted to an emergency department and how was your experience and what is the best way to avoid the nightmares of long waits and other disadvantages of the imperfect health system?
