Considering NO ONE would help me help my mother out of our car(she could not walk) and into the hospital in what was an emergency, which I later had to do myself by going back in and asking for a wheelchair, I am rather upset with the front office staff. The nurses working in the back where the patients rooms are are wonderful people, but the receptionist is what really got to me. I asked for something simple, help in getting my mother into the waiting room, and instead was left to do it myself, panicking, of course, in what was an emergency situation. It took approximately an hour before my mother was called in and roomed, and more than an hour later after that we were finally seen by a doctor.
