  • Don’t drive yourself or have someone else drive you unless it’s EMS. Call 911 and go to the ER in an ambulance, you will be seen faster.

  • Bruh I had really bad chest pains and went to the hospital and took ages for them to take me in, luckily it wasn’t my heart.

    Sadly not everyone is lucky RIP

  • My gosh. I cannot apologize enough to the family. I wish I had been there; I'm "that jerk" guy that would have fought for her to get attention. I am so sorry.

  • I went to the emergency in a local hospital with a major heart attack and had to wait to be processed and give information then have vitals taken. It was a good half hour. I had a major blood clot in my heart. When the doctors examined me they literally ran with me on a gurney to the Cath lab to save my life. This poor girl didn’t even have anyone help her? My gosh something is wrong with this hospital’s procedures. Rip Angel.

  • while the hospital may and is at fault…I also blame the ppl that go to the e.r for non emergent stuff…they are the ones clogging up the resources needed to take care of the truly emergent people! and I know some of you will say well I dont have any insurance…well to counter that there are a ton of free clinics in most cities that will see your stump toe that happen 3 weeks ago…you dont need an e.r for that! go to a free clinic if no insurance or go to your primary care dr!

  • well well well. the hospital was in a Democrat held district since 1949. Who would have thunk that Democrats would get nothing done. Done blame the system for something you can blame your congress person for.

  • I cant speak for this hospital but the one I work at has to prioritize patients based on severity, space and available staff. Had she waited at that hospital, she would have been taken immediately the moment she went into arrest. Her impatience killed her. I'm sorry for the families loss

  • Everytime I go to the doctor they tell me I'm fine but I know it's BS. When you are a young minority woman healthcare sucks.

  • Have you been to a hospital lately there under staffed and over crowded i went in sat in waiting room for 3 hours just to be brought in but put on a stretcher outside of a room for 4 hours because no rooms were available this isn't new

  • With all the negativity about poor service at their local ER i would like to say Northside Hospital in St Petersburg FL and St Anthonys in St Petersburg FL have always got me in right away when I went to the ER. There are good hospitals out there. And they should be recognized.
    Sure the bill was really expensive but when I went in for what I thought was cardiac issues I was immediately attended to.
    I'm sorry this lady lost her life and tons of people have had poor experiences at their local hospitals.

  • If she knowingly left the hospital AFTER being diagnosed with an enlarged heart, then she committed suicide! Sorry you don't think you should have to wait but in the adult world sometimes you just have to sit and wait your turn. All of us have to do it. Instant gratification only works with microwave ovens and fast food drive thru. For important things like an ENLARGED HEART patience is the best policy.

  • If you have this type of emergency it's best to call an ambulance since patients arriving by ambulance are usually given priority. Better to live and deal with an ambulance bill than die. Any chest pain that makes you feel weak, anxious, shortness of breath, feeling of dread, call 911 and wait for the ambulance. You will be seen sooner than rushing to the ER, finding a parking spot, walking to the counter, and then finally sign in and wait to be seen.

  • When hospital greed exceeds care and compassion for its patients something is really wrong. If hospitals across the country were investigated the results would make Boeing executives look like saints. Sad really sad.

  • Stupid entitled woman left because she expects everyone to stop so she can go to the front of the line. Sorry that's just not how it works.

  • They played the identity card. Woman< black woman etc. Like a white guy with a scruffy beard would've been whisked away to first class. Give me a fokin break already!

  • This is the state of our medical care in this country. A dying woman, at a young age, of color. This is absolutely intolerable- this is one of the most shameful cases of professional malpractice I have ever heard. It is tragic that the only recourse is litigation.

  • Young black women do not wait longer than everyone else. That is an outright lie. I work in the medical industry.

  • This is ridiculous! Chest pains are a priority! Who was triaging this? She should have been seen right away! This is madness!

  • It’s the same for the hospital for all over the Milwaukee. I had to, multiple times wait more than 1+ hour at emergency room sometimes with the exact symptoms as her, chest pain and trouble breathing. And my only advise it just stay there until you are called because they are professional and if something’s going wrong with you in the waiting room then help right there.

  • Wow . This is a glimpse of the wonders of what will happen with socialized medicine or health-care for all .my exp is with the VA you can get even sicker before your appointment waiting months. I was at my VA mental health issues and while waiting for an appointment with severe nausea and stomach pain a security guard started asking me 100 ?s being sick I was really irrational and didn't want a confrontation so I walked of the VA property and laid on the snowy grass by the fence on a cardboard until my appointment later that day.

  • I am sorry but trying to make this a racist incident is wrong. Bottom line…
    She should never have left the hospital. Especially for a urgent care. I mean come on. If you went into cardiac arrest where would you rather be? A hospital or an urgent care? If she would have waited she would probably still be alive. Much sympathy to the family and God rest and bless her soul but this was just a terrible mistake on her part. Six hours is ridiculous though.

  • It’s her fault she left .. Right away she hires an attorney money grubbing,,, u should be morning your daughter it’s not their fault that she left..

  • We MUST demand better health care. God rest her soul, no way that should have happened to her. Terrible just terrible 😥.

  • Don’t make this racial I’ve waited just as long in emergency room or longer it wasn’t my heart … too many illegals in with their sick kids … hospitals can’t keep up they go bankrupt bills don’t get paid this woman should never have left she made a fatal decision … and it wasn’t her race .. ridiculous !

  • Not surprised.. my mom had cancer in one area and they gave her surgery and said it was removed …. Weeks later in pain I took her to another hospital and they found out the other hospital removed a artery in in her leg that had nothing to do with the cancer she had because she was taking xarelto a blood thinner and now the cancer they could have removed easily according to the new doctors spread and now it's chemo and radiation our last option … Way to go medical education.

  • Another victim of America’s disastrous health care system. This system is not worth saving. It’s not worth defending.

  • Let's not overpay race. This happens across the board. It is an absolutely unacceptable reality for all people. Especially the poor. I don't know this womans lifestyle, but that lifestyle should be erelovent! The obvious problem is the lack of staff! Regardless of the why!
    These are the problems that need solutions. Forget you fuckung politics!

  • About a year ago, I went to the ER for an extremely bad headache, trouble breathing, pain in my face. I went there around 4pm. Didn’t get seen til after 3am. Luckily it turned out to be just a severe sinus infection. They need to change the way hospitals are run. I get that some are under staffed.

  • She is dead because Trump removed Obamacare. and now that Trump is removing "Healthy School Lunches"
    and replacing it with junk foods, i can imagine lots of kids will choke to death at school as a result.

  • Those murderous clowns. She not only had an enlarged heart, she had CHEST PAINS and SHORTNESS of BREATH. Those three combined means top priority treatment right away. I wish the worst for the supervisor who made the decision to make her wait. Unreal.

  • Many just r just un sympathetic..i.ll just Leave it at dat..she.s n a better place..
    I moved on ☝ like d Jefferson's i have no wait time..get it

  • She didnt want to wait . we can be oniline for hours yet cant wait 5 hours . i was in the 10 once i had to wait . may she rest in peace . People can also be so insensitive to the ER doctors and nurses trying their best to running same day service place I bet you they feel really bad

  • If i didn't have family that work in the triage, i would have bled to death in the waiting room. Luckily she was off work and i went to her house. The hospitals these days are pathetic. Manners found there are beyond traumatic.

  • The doctor stood in the hall ,told my gasping husband there is nothing wrong with you. The Emergency nurse bum-rushed my husband out , after two hours. (the insurance Tricare/Medicare coverage limit? ) By morning my husband was dead. He deserved more respect . It’s all about money

  • I WENT TO THE EMERCENCY ROOM AND I was there on the floor squirming for 6 hours and they never called me. in so i went wandering upstairs delirious. and found a nurse that helped me

  • You can't walk out of the hospital A.M.A. and then complain about the results. (Against Medical Advice.) If they told her to leave, and come back later, or told her to go somewhere else, she'd own them. She left a hospital and went to an "urgent care" which is a lower level of care. She's just full of good decisions, isn't she? She was fine where she was, on oxygen, perhaps even on some meds, and decided that stopping oxygen, and getting the exercise of walking out would be a better choice? What evidence does she have to say that her level of care was not sufficient and that walking out was the answer to that?
