    St Francis Health Center Inc: "Waited 3 hrs 15” to get into room. Called back by nurse and she walked 30 ft in front of me even though I felt weak and passing out. I will see how the rest goes. Told me to get undressed and left nothing else. Not one caring gesture. I don’t want to be here either " - John

    Lawrence Memorial Hospital: "Currently at LMH. It's been an hour since my daughter has been checked on. She has a possible blood clot in her leg after a fall. Wondering if driving to another hospital would be faster." - Jess

    Shawnee Mission Medical Center: "The wait time online must be the only time they’re allowed to input. When I had tried to be seen twice, BOTH times had a wait of a minimum of 6 hrs!!! First time I waited 4.5 hrs then left. Second time I heard a nurse tell a patient that the wait was roughly 6 hrs. At that time I was only there 30 mins. I got up and left. Complete joke…" - Geneva

    Shawnee Mission Medical Center: "Horrible. Been waiting 3.5 hours now. I’ve watched patients come in after me and get discharged while I continue to get passed over. I politely asked the counter person (while she was eating her ice cream), why am I being passed over. She stated it is based on acute status. I’ve watched them call back folks that have a headache, a hurt hand, and vomiting. All while I sit here actively bleeding from my chest. It is insane to continue to be pushed to the back of the line. I’m not dying by any means but I would consider my issue to at least keep me from being pushed back in the line multiple times. " - Jason
