Hackensack University Medical Center: "My dad has been to Hackensack hospital over 10 times and we have never ever waited to get him into a room under 16 hours. EVER! Always waited in the dam emergency room in the halls like an animal for 16+ hours.
Whoever wrote the average of 2:45 is on drugs !
It’s just not normal and if he didn’t have all his records and dr here I would never come back because of that.
A 90 year old, or anyone for that matter should not be subjected to this. Once or twice I can understand, but without fail every time!
Shame on them!"
