My 82 year old mother was taken to ER at 10:30 am from her doctor's office for extreme dizziness, almost passing out, with very elevated blood pressure and confusion and some chest pain. After initial tests were negative the at about 3:30 pm ER doctor decided to admit for observation. My mother was finally admitted to hospital and taken to a room at 11:30 pm. Even though further tests were not being done she was not offered anything to eat or drink for 13 hours. Orders for meds hadn't even been entered at 12:30 am which means she will not receive anything for another hour or two, if she's lucky. Waiting 8 hours for a room and 13 hours total after being admitted to ER is not acceptable for an 82 year old woman. Never again.

Went to the ER vomiting blood with end stage liver disease. Waited for over 2 hours while continuing to vomit. ER doctor came in said he had no idea about my disease and had the nuse hook me up with vitamin bags that I told him could kill me but he walked out never to be seen again. I was admitted a few hours later after they finally listened to me about blood work ups and some of the nurses and nas were helpful and listened to me since I am studying internal medicine for my specialty in med school. A lot of the nuses are to young and way too immature to deal with people and the hospital rejected my doctors from trying to help me because they were not on staff. So if you have to go sray long enough to get up out off bed and walk out front and take a cab to anywhere else. They also gave me infected blood which now results into a heart condition I hope my team can fix.

I came to the ER because I was experiencing excruciating abdominal pain. It seems I was passing a gall stone. It was so bad that I could only lay in the floor. I waited about a half hour before I was called back to give my information. After that, I was told to go back out and wait that they were waiting on a bed. I was still waiting five hours later. There were a number of patients in the waiting room that were waiting as long as I and some even longer. To me, this is criminal. The pain subsided and I finally walked out. I must say that I didn't have a problem with few of the personnel that I dealt with. Would've just liked to have been seen by a doctor. This is a real problem at this hospital. If you have to go to an ER and have a choice, I recommend that you go elsewhere.
