    Evergreen Hospital Medical Center: "I had to wait for 3 hours+ for an emergency last night for my daughter who passed out for a minute. My daughter had not been feeling well but had to sit on a chair for hours to be seen. Purpose of ER is to get the point in time diagnosis. But in this case, things got normal by the time she was attended defeating the very purpose. We are back to square one not knowing what caused it." - Rajiv

    Evergreen Hospital Medical Center: "I contracted MRSA at Evergreen Hospital. I had a knee replacement, then had the knee drained a few times then the 2nd surgery to clean things out. I believe the MRSA happened on this 2nd operation but could have been the first. A third operation was performed and 2 months have gone by with me giving myself transfusions of anti biotics through a pic line. Quite possibly a 4th to remove the knee and a 5th operation to put it back in. the entire ordeal has been hell for me" - Ross
