My issues were were the first person I saw upon entering the hospital, before I was finally admitted to the emergency room. After I got in the actual emergency room, things were done well.

Long wait time to be seen. Waiting room patients resting and lying on floor. If at all possible go somewhere else.

ER visits are stressful and often require long waits. I doubt there are any that I would rate Very Good.
