TELL US: What are some of your memories at Holy Cross Hospital?

My memories are ones of shocking hostility from the nurses and the doctors who treated my father 10 years ago. I wanted them to try to save my dad's life and they were not afraid or ashamed to show me how they felt about it. I guess they saw too many older people who "want everything done" and they were not pleased. Finally they euthanized my pops by witholding treatment and letting me watch him die (see holycrosshealth.com).
