Loretto Hospital Stories

Loretto Hospital: "This is to explain my deceased loved ones experience there. She came in for abodominal pain which turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy. She was admitted through the emergency room and was not seen for almost 7 hours and subsequently passed at the age of 36 in the OR and she was brought to the medical unit and false life saving measures were taken so the death was not recorded in the Operating room. Please do not send your loved ones here.
