Husband was admitted to emergency room at KCH approximately 11 am ,on January 10th, with stroke and seizures.Was given medication to stop seizures. At 3pm still in ER waiting for ambulance to transport to CDH. Was told by staff in ER couldn't locate ambulance with right equipment and enough personnel. Finally at 5pm a helicopter was sent for transport. His neurologist was waiting for him at CDH and may have requested the helicopter. I would not recommend Kishwaukee Hospital. They are not equipped to handle emergencies.
