    Olympic Medical Center: "I've had to use the ER for back pain in which I had already has a surgery scheduled in Seattle, and I needed care right then. The facility has absolutely NO compassion and I was treated with no dignety. I'm not a drug seeker. They had my CT scan in which they had access. I was appalled in the lack of /no care. I've been to Seattle area hospitals and this facility needs to shadow a hospital there. Because the hospital here is in the middle of nowhere for the most part, they run it as so." - Sally
