Upmc St Margaret: "As I write this, I am sitting in St Margarets ER. I have 3 chronic Kidney Diseases and am currently passing kidney stones. I am on high does pain and nausea meds and in horrific pain and vomiting constantly. I have been waiting in the waiting room for more than 2 hours. Triage said my status was urgent and I would be bumped ahead based on my vitals. However, almost everyone else has went back before me and I am still waiting here. I am now dry heaving so they gave me water so I would have something to puke up.... My Nephrologist who works here told me to come in and I have yet to be seen. " - Angel
