What an awful place. The last time we visited there to have a broken limb treated, we waited for over FIVE HOURS to be seen. Nurses were outstanding, but others (doctors) were condescending, insensitive, and snippy. Also, there's nowhere to go to get anything to eat while waiting if you're there at odd hours, and the vending machines were broken and/or empty. Ambulances brought in patient after patient who were put in line ahead of people who had been waiting. We seriously considered going out to the sidewalk and dialing 911 in order to get seen sooner.

My experience occurred during a flu epidemic that overloaded all the local hospitals. As I recall, I waited a long time and then gave up and went home.
