I was in an overflow ER room with a bunch of other patients for seven days before being transferred to a room that I spent a total of two hours in before being sent to another hospital. Visitors were allowed... more 24/7, so I had to deal with strangers everywhere all the time. I also had a botched surgery here before my hospitalization (the cause of my prolonged stay). The surgeon who messed it up came to visit me a few days before I left reeking of alcohol, apologizing profusely. Oh, but lovely view of the Staples Center.
Our experience is with the children's emergency department. My normally super chill three months old was screaming non stop for a couple of hours. I remembered our pediatrician's advice to go the children's... more emergency room if we needed urgent attention, I am so glad we did. We were seen immediately, everyone were super nice and attentive. I just felt wonderful being there. Of course my screaming baby was giggling as soon as we got there. I had to drive for awhile to get to the hospital, but was so glad to have been seen by a pediatrician, who was super comfortable around babies and not emergency room physician.
