    Boston Children's Hospital: "Wait time is ridiculous. Just to be admitted to a room, takes over 3 hours. To top it, when child is dehydrated. They gave me an 8 oz of water for her to drink after hours of vomiting. They found her dehydrated and gave her water to sit in the waiting area over 3 hours. I'm beyond upset. I asked to why and no answer. " - Iny
