Details:

My husband entered this hospital through the emergency room. He was treated with disrespect by the nursing staff and had inadequate care. I reported the problems the next day to the hospital admin. office. When I received the records to file on accident policy, I found a statement from a male nurse that was falsely presented. I intend to file a complaint with the Bureau of Health Services.
