Father was admitted to ER at 6 pm, and was left unseen till 9 am the following morning without food or attention. I regret having to admit him to this s-hole, and hope the required 3 day stay has him escape the place intact.

Totally unable to provide care to a patient with Alzheimer's. Left alone in feces and urine, family had to stay 24 hrs per day or provide private duty nurse to be sure that patient would receive care.
