Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center: "I was brought to bayview ER on 7/9/22 at 10pm for a MVA involving 3 vehicles. I was t boned at >50/55 mph. It is 5am on 7/10/22 and I still have not been seen. The triage nurse named Loran was rude, uncaring, and total lack of compassion. She refused to do a finger stick after I told her I wasn’t feeling right and I am a diabetic dependent on 3 types of insulin. She rudely told me that patients need to take care of their own medical conditions and to go sit down. I ask multiple times to speak to the charge nurse, and I still have not talked with charge nurse. Then she eagerly told me wait times are most likely close to 25 hours! This place is a joke and I would advise NEVER to come here! X-rays and CT scan taken at 1130pm and no one as given results. I had to insist they do a neck, back X-ray and head CT. They were only gonna do X-ray of my shoulder. Also restrooms were disgustingly filthy and the waiting room had trash laying around and used blankets. The security guards were laughing and joking around very loudly most of the time with no regard to patients and their current trauma or sickness they are experiencing. This is just unexceptable." - Wilhelm
