    Holy Spirit Hospital: "I came in to emergency room at 1:20 p.m. with severe case of diarrhea and vomiting. By 7:40 p.m. I had to leave because I didn't expect to be waiting for SEVEN hours and didn't bring my regular medications and my right sight of my body started getting numb. I was told that they can't give me any meds without admitting me to a room which might take another 4 hours!!!! So 7 hours and additional 4 hours, that's 11 hours waiting time at Holly spirit emergency room. Horrible " - Natalya
