CHAOS in Swedish hospital – “patients screaming”

Follow us on social media!

A hospital in Stockholm went into a special state of preparedness on Sunday after running out of available treatment areas.

A doctor who worked in the emergency area at the hospital told Expressen that a 97 year old patient had to wait at least 19 hours before being admitted to the hospital.

“I left a patient that was over 90 year old and had blood poisoning. That patient had waited at the emergency room since lunch time, and had not yet been admitted when I left the next morning at seven” the doctor said.

Patients had to wait in the corridors because of lack of available places. One doctor said that “patients were screaming in the corridors”.

It was so bad that at two separate occasions the hospital couldn’t even receive any more ambulances.

A nurse told SvD that “it resembled a war zone” and it was the worst the nurse had experienced after 20 years in the field.

According to SVT, some patients have had to wait as long as 32 hours for an available place at the hospital.

The hospital in question, Södersjukhuset, has now on Monday canceled the special state of preparedness that they set up on Sunday, after they managed to open up more places, and less patients arriving.

The health care system in Sweden is mainly government funded and universal for all citizens. It is primarily funded by tax money. Sweden has one of the highest taxes in the world.
