Abington Memorial Hospital: "This hospital is garbage unfortunately. Brought my daughter in with an abscess throat infection, spitting up blood, shivering with fever, can’t swallow her spit, and here we continue to sit three hours later. The hospital staff have an uncaring attitude. It’s sad how bad this hospital has failed since it was taken over." - Ben
