A close friend was taken to Evanston Hospital during a seizure, and I waited for four hours in the emergency waiting room as she received treatment. While I have no complaints about the waiting time (I understand; it's an emergency room), I do wonder why the nurses and doctors treating my friend were so slow to respond. She was very upset because they would leave her there for extended periods of time without letting her know what was going on. It was very frustrating. But in the end, things did work out, and the hospital staff did get the job done. So it could've been worse -- but it also could've been much better.
