Johns Hopkins Hospital, The: "The Johns Hopkins waiting room is horrible the wait times are truly ridiculous there’s all kinds of homeless people coming into the Er not to truly be seen but to go to sleep out of the cold that is frustrating in itself people who come in absolute pain have to wait until their done with the homeless and I’m not saying their is anything wrong with it but some of these people need mental institutions not a hospital and it’s not right to the people who are truly in pain! I came here in pain I had surgery right here in the same hospital 2 months ago and the only reason I came back was because the pain was feeling the exact same way it did the first time all the nurses and doctors can see my last notes I still had to wait over 7 hours!!!!!
