    Fort Madison Community Hospital: "I came in because I felt like my ear drum was going to explode and I was having hearing problems and because it’s Sunday the ER was my only option. I was here for about 30 minutes before I was triaged and sent back to the waiting room being told it was going to be a 1.5-2 hour wait. I’ve been here for 4 hours now and have yet to be seen.
