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

Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center: "I had a start of a bad infection this hospital barley did anything knowing how serious it could be they sent me home I went to PENN MEDICINE IN PHILADELPHIA with them knowing the same thing THEY admitted me for two weeks . I can back explained I’m waiting on my medication but since my PICC line and medication was through PENN MEDICINE they routinely checked me due to other issues . Which is understandable and again I went to PENN where I was admitted until everything with my medication was set up .

Months later I came back with a drainage issue from one of my wounds on my leg EVERYTHING IS THE SAME ISSUE .
I found out I had an infection on top an infection: The DRs here tested me I GOT NO CALL AND MY CHART WAS NOT UPDATED BECAUSE I CHECK IT ALL THE TIME . It took 30 days for me to find out ny wound was infected . 30 days with out medication and I was getting worse luckily for me I had an appointment with my ID DR at PENN and he was the one who found out what was going on and treated me right away but due to their negligence everything got worse .
