Details:

Was in hospital for 5 days- room was never cleaned,trash never emptied, sheets changed once. Night cleaning crew spent their time talking on their cells in the Family Waiting Room. Nurses did not wash hands and Doctor's NP wore a dirty lab coat every day. Developed a severe stomach infection after discharge- had to go to local emerg room. Complained to the surgeon and he told me to "call housekeeping". You are definitely taking your life in your hands at this hospital.
