    Memorial Hospital Los Banos: "I was admitted to ER by ambulance. The Dictor was very genuine in his diagnosis and concern but I was treated very substandard. I was put in a room next to a cold cement wall. I was wet and never offered anything dry to put on. Finally 3 hour later I had to call home 3am and have my wife bring me dry clothes because I was FREEZING. 35min drive. Then after being admitted 12-14 hour later. I was poached by a surgeon that took out a healthy appendics 8- 10 hours before I was scheduled to be transferred to another facility. Very shady place. And the doctor that did the surgery is on probation already. How can this happpen?" - Janet
