"A 25-year-old Milwaukee woman died after facing an hours-long wait at an emergency room for chest pain, collapsing as she went to seek help at an urgent care center instead.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Tashonna Ward arrived at Froedtert Hospital’s emergency room just before 5 p.m. on Jan. 2 due to shortness of breath and chest pain. According to a Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s report, Ward was seen for tests, and an X-ray showed that she had cardiomegaly or an enlarged heart.

She was sent back to the waiting room where she waited for treatment and posted on Facebook about the long wait.

"I been here since 4:30 something for shortness of breath, and chest pains for them to just say it’s a two to SIX hour wait to see a dr. Like that is really f—— ridiculous," her post read.

After roughly two and a half hours in the emergency room, at approximately 7:30 p.m., Ward decided to go to an Urgent Care to seek help. According to the medical examiner’s report, Ward said she sought help elsewhere because she "felt she was waiting too long.”"
