On Sat Apr 26 16:29:15 +0000 2014, Alexandra Miles posted the following review:

Some nurses at the Purple Tower, Wellstar Kennestone, appear to be deliberately ignoring heart monitor flatlines and faulty drips so they can have the drama of running in to 'save' the patient up to to 2 hours later.

This is on both the day shift and the night shift, so unless they do double shifts, more than one nurse is responsible.. Also people are told by their nurses their scans are "all clear" when they are not, their specialists are cancelled on that basis, and the patient, if they survive, goes home not knowing their prescribed medication therefore stands a good chance of killing them.
