University Medical Center, Las Vegas, NV Informative - This hospital needs to be shut down.
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- I have been in Las Vegas for over 10 years coming from Los Angeles at that time. I am appaled at the lack of clenliness surrounding the surgeries in the University Medical Center (UMC) hospital. This hospital recieves most the county's poor -- those that do not have the ability to pay. I have found that this hosiptal is in such poor shape that most surgical procedures end in staff infections for non-steryl equipment. Please do us all a favor and shut it down. One additional note: the average wait time in their Emergency Room is an appaling siz hours.
