: "Went to Bayhealth Milford yesterday. Got there at 3:30 pm for a bowel obstruction, severe abdominal pain 8/10, chest pain 5/10, nausea. Saw the triage nurse. Wasn’t brought back until after 11 pm to fast track. Never had anyone with chest pain and an implanted device go to a fast track, revitalized, rechecked, or otherwise approached. Nothing had been addressed until well after being brought back. When I arrived at the hospital, I checked Hospitalstats, and they indicated the wait time was a 2:55 minutes. I worked as an RN in their facilities for more than 15 years in their ER and other It took about 8 hours to go back. Never saw an employee come into the waiting room to check on anyone else. VERY dissatisfied. God bless the other patients, especially really sick ones." - Ray
