Wheelchair Inaccessible

Took my partner's niece to a downtown Halifax hospital emergency department and it wasn't the kids' one. She had sprained her ankle. No wheelchair to be had, for security guards looking for one and/or crutches. She ended up hopping in the door then was given a computer chair to wheel on. Healthcare shortage? This is totally absurd. An emergency room with no wheelchairs. There should be a couple at the door at all times to transport patients in the door. I said if your arm was hanging off by a thread, would you have to carry in your own appendage? On top of this, no one there to help us—three security guards never got out of their room and the triage people never came over to see the need for help on my face. -HOPPING MAD
