This was by far the worst hospital experience I've ever dealt with in my life. My fiance went in to be treated for a high risk rabies bite. The bite was deemed high risk by a veterinary hospital connected to the University of Pennsylvania -- the animal in question was exhibiting strong signs of having rabies and, since it bit a human, had to be euthanized by law. We were told to get a rabies vaccine ASAP, but unfortunately that night we went to two hospitals that were severely and dangerously understaffed in the city and would have had to wait indefinitely. Since the CDC advises that you need the vaccine ASAP but within 24 hours, we decided to do this early the next day. Bear in mind that he is uninsured and we were willing to pay out of pocket for a vaccine, however much it costs without insurance, because his life was in jeopardy. We went to this hospital in Maryland, as it was convenient on the way to a work event and we figured the wait time would be short. The entire time he was there, he was treated to stories of "a woman came in the other week who had waited three weeks after being bit to get her shots and she was fine!", some coming from nurse staff and some from intake staff. Symptoms of rabies can show at 3 weeks at its earliest, and when symptoms have appeared, it is TOO LATE and the illness has a VERY HIGH DEATH RATE. I highly doubt this woman was "fine," but as far as vitals she checked out okay and was able to be released from their hospital. While my fiance was there, at no point did he see a doctor; he saw nurse staff that brought him through the ringer about getting a rabies post-exposure vaccine. They called the 24 hour vet and said there was "no proof" that the animal was there or that it had rabies (I was able to obtain this information with a simple email); they called the Health Boards of MD and PA, the latter of which spoke to him to say that "it's his choice to get the shots now but he has more time to do so" (which is inconsistent with what the CDC says), but the nurses at Union Hospital took this to mean that it's "policy" not to give the rabies shots now, and that they're "just following policy" -- even though what the Health Board actually said was that he could choose to do it now or a little later. At no point did he see a doctor, just incompetent nurse staff that did not seem to know or care about the scope of the issue and how deadly this was. I feel in my gut that this is medical malpractice, and only hope that other patients at this hospital who are in similar situations receive the care they need instead of being denied it. We were finally able to go to another hospital, Virtua Hospital in New Jersey, who let us in right away and gave him the shots he needed. I am floored by the unfair and unjust treatment he received at Union Hospital. He's uninsured and was going to pay out of pocket anyway -- why deny him something that could save his life?

My first experience was a trip to the ER on a Thursday morning for my wife. We had no wait and were taken to a room in minutes. I thought it was taking an overly long time for treatment, and sent an email to the President of the hospital. He ACTUALLY came down to our room, explained what was going on, heard our concerns, and addressed them all. He was amazing, and made us felt like valued patients.

Thanks Dr. Szumel.
