Nazareth Hospital: "Extremely SLOW

Nazareth Hospital: "I believe the only reason this facility exists is the fire rescue takes you here if you live within certain boundaries. Most people beg them to take a patient to other hospitals. If they call and the other e.r. is full you land at Nazareth. Hospital is dirty,staff seems unhappy they are working there.main problem is they want to hold onto the patient when they should be moved to another hospital . Last experience in the fall was a nightmare. Fire rescue again. Very poor condition. Two dr. Actually verbally sparring beside. The dr. Who was standing up for the patient was a good and honorable man. I do not know how he works there. He told us the truth. Other dr I think was trying to see how far he could go with treatment. Very sad.that is just the latest in a long line of horror stories. When the man at the desk actually tells yuh ou to get your loved one the hell out of here ......what else can be said" - Ree
