    Hospital Of Univ Of Pennsylvania: "I don't think we will ever come back here. We have been here 8 hours, and many patients have been waiting for over 9 hours. The bathrooms are filthy. This place is WAY understaffed. Will probably take a ride to a suburban hospital if we need to go the ER again. Meanwhile, we continue to wait...

    Conemaugh Valley Memorial Hospital: "My mother lied to police to force me into a psych hold, and despite Conemaughs psych unit being on a covid lock down, I got taken to Conemaugh despite their inability to treat me. I was held overnight, promised a transfer first thing in the morning so I could go to a hospital that CAN do my evaluation. Now it's almost dinner and nobody will even answer me about what the hold up is and when I can expect to get treated. I am almost certain that Conemaugh is delaying on purpose in order to charge me for an extra day, and would highly recommend that other patients stay far, far away. Their current online ratings haven't caught up to how horrible they've become. Locally, Conemaugh is known as the place where you go to die" - Lisa
