: "Highland hospital waiting for over 4.5 hours. Took parent in who was in pretty bad shape severe pain screaming in agony. Still no one came out to see her or check on her. Told them she was very dehydrated and malnourished which didn’t really make a difference . Still no one came out to get her for any labs, test, hydration. They just told me if she was in the list they will get to her. Watching nurses in through the glass snacking and talking makes it even more irritating. If you’re in break go take it where you’re not visible it shows carelessness and non compassion. " - Patient

: "This is by far one of rhe worst experiences I have had at a ER room. I have been here since 11:15 p and its now 6:30am. The staff all disappear and their is No communication what so ever. You cant really leave with a IV in your arm. It is so cold in this waiting room that my feet where numb and i have on closed toe shoes. I was permitted one hospital sheet that soon became as cold as a sheet of ice. Mind you i have on a shirt and sweater. Overall the lack of communication is unbelievable! Finally a gentleman came around about 6 and took stats of all the oatients in the waiting room. Now I and my family have knots in our shoulders from trying to get comfortable. Your pain doesnt matter if you arent bleeding out or acting a fool. I came with level on 6 and pain level on 9 after all this time! Jisy so dissapointed in the overall lack of care, empathy respect. Did I mention that I still havent been registered. Plenty of people after me have been but not one word. I overheard someone say they only had two drs on shift for the ER. Absolutely disgusted with this service! Go elsewhere!!! This lack of service beats Sinia and Northwest…. Disgusting!!!" - L.

: "After sitting in the waiting room for three hours we’re told that the meantime of seeing a doctor is 6 hours. We’ve been here three hours at Madison ER and on looked at vitals. My father has tested positive for COVID and we’re in the waiting room with everyone else. The old days of being cautious around COVID is long gone. My father appears to be one of the healthier ones yet he has COVID, High BP. Beginning to think the bed at home was a better choice" - Quention

: "After sitting in the ER @ Banner on Campbell for 13 hours,bleeding. They finally took a blood test about 2 hours in. I went home after 13 hours because I was too weak to sit up and they won't let you lie down. I had gone the night before @ 1am until 4am. They told me it would be between 10-12 more hours so I went home to lie down. 4 hrs later I called and they said they had already called me. That's a lie. Someone I knew was thereente and said they never be called me. The guy sitting next to me waited 19 hours. The average wait Tuesday and Thursday was 12-14 hours. This is not acceptable in this country, especially at what's supposed to be the best hospital in Tucson. " - Roscoe

: "I went because of awful cramps with C-Diff, plus pneumonia. I was put in the ER room. I was there 12 hrs. Very rarely did you see a nurse. Left all alone in the room 4 hrs.
I finally went out and told them I was leaving to get my discharge papers ready or I would leave without them.
Not one nurse could put in an IV after trying 12 times. Yes they have time to gossip and cut up and play on the phone.

Worse hospital I’ve ever been to, it’s the only one we have in those town. Once I was admitted I got good treatment, the problem is the ER dr’s and nurses were very attentive. "
