They told my parents to wait till he was call after 3.5 hours of waiting my mom notice everyone after him was called register and got a bed while my dad waited and was smelling because of something the hospital did the day before... my mom told me everyone who enter was colored and they were white...She got pissed and asked if they had to be color to get service. They immediately got my dad a bed without registering him...She told them he needed to be registered and have a bracelet they said not needed..they moved to a different location and waited another hour and noone attended to send a person...a nurse came almost 2 hours to take blood and was asking for his bracelet which he had none now causing a bigger confusion..God knows how long they will be there..

Morristown Memorial Hospital: "Absolutely HORRIBLE hospital! I went there because an anti-anxiety med Buspar made me manic when my Dr. raised it. They doubled the Buspar and put me on Lamictil too quickly because they thought I was Bi-polar.I had 18 horrible mental and physical symptoms including losing most of my memory, severe panic attacks, diareah for 2 months straight, and couldn't walk. I saw 4 psyche Dr's and NONE of them realized they were from the meds. Discharged me after 2 weeks while still VERY sick with no follow up care in place. Had to go to another hospital for 2 weeks to wean off half of them, then when home a missed 1 dose of Lamictil ,went into severe withdrawal and my symptoms got worse. Went to the ER and the Dr. discharged me because I "looked better". Had to go to a Detox for 2 more weeks and pay $1000 a day. They either don't know what they are doing, or just want to keep patients there for the money, or like getting a kickback from Big Pharma. Save yourself... DON'T GO THERE!!!!!
