To whom it may concern: On July 12, 2011 I went to Harford Memorial Hospital Emergency Room, Upon entering the waiting room, it was absolutely filthy, this was my first impression. Once I was called back for treatment, I was put into a room that was freezing cold, the nurse inserted an IV, not a soul supplied me any blankets upon request. I waiting in pain in that room for hours. I was of course a bit disgruntled, but realizing there is usually a wait in any emergency room I continued to wait patiently. Curling up in the fetal position in pain, I noticed blood on the bed rail that was IN NO WAY mine!! I decided at this point I was leaving, IV or not! Upon gathering my personal items and dressing I began to walk out the Emergency room. Suddenly there were three nurses trying to keep me from leaving, they insisted I sign a form to say that I was refusing treatment, I did not consent to signing this form, and never did. While walking out of the hospital...in pain, The nurses continued to follow me to my vehicle. I got into my car and proceeded to Upper Chesapeake Hospital emergency room. I WAS NOT seen by any doctors while at Harford Memorial, and received no attention whatsoever besides the insertion of the IV. It seemed quite remarkable to me that there was a total of three nurses that chased me out of the hospital, but could not offer any care while I waited in excruciating pain for hours! I do not know who is in charge at this particular hospital, but it has extremely poor sanitation, and an Emergency room that is possibly under-staffed, or doctors and nurses who just do not care. I do not believe under ANY circumstances that I should me made to lay in a bed contaminated with another persons bodily fluids!! This to me is a shocking sanitary issue. I do not believe that this hospital should be paid for care unreceived. I sincerely believe that the health department would completely agree with me. I wanted nothing more than to receive care immediately considering my condition, but instead had to be driven to yet another facility. I felt that in these unsanitary conditions that had I stayed I would of ended up with something else! This hospital MUST be inspected by the health department. In my dismay we have two hospitals that are local, and both owned by the same individuals. The care in both corresponding hospitals (Upper Chesapeake & Harford Memorial) is appalling, although Upper Chesapeake seems to be a bit more sanitary. This is unacceptable by any means. I did in fact contact my insurance company in reference to this matter, and told them under no circumstances that Harford Memorial should be paid for these atrocities. If I am made to pay this bill, it is my intent to contact the media, as well as the health department. I should contact them anyhow. I have children as well and would loath having to have them treated in any of these facilities. As I conveyed earlier, our area has no choice between Emergency rooms. I would, had I had the option, hightailed it to another facility if there was any way possible. These conditions are deplorable, and should not continue. Please feel free to contact me in reference to this matter. I may be reached at: (410)937-4258. This is after all, the insurance companies being taken as well, and people wonder why health insurance rates are skyrocketing! I appreciate your time and attention to this matter.

I had gone with back pain. They gave me pain medicine(shot) which didn't help. They gave me another shot and it still didn't help. I told them I was still in pain and they acted like I was lying. They said there was no way I could still be in pain. They took x-rays but couldn't find anything wrong, so they sent me home. I found out a week or two later I had gall stones.

Harford memorial has to be one of the absolute worst hospitals I have ever had the chance to stay. The doctors are at best irresponsible and indifferent however the nursing staff is very good and undeserving of doctors who really don't seem to give a rats butt about their patients. The hospital itself is dirty and in severe need of some upgrades in equipment and decorum. The admin staff has to be one of the worst in the country. I have to chuckle at the fact that that the 4th floor has been given the name " The Killing Fields" by their own staff. What a hoot this completely dysfunctional and border line care facility this so called hospital happens to be, one can actually see the total lack of moral in the faces of their staff. After talking with some of the local folks in Havre de Grace at a local coffee shop..the locals call Harford Memorial ..get a load of this..."The House of Death" and "The Steven King Memorial Hospital" no doubt to the horror stories published by the famous author.
