Q: Heart attack confirmed, no intervention by hospital staff for 45 minutes waiting for Covid test

Two stents in heart, one in leg. They would not let me say goodbye to my mother, I thought I was going to die because I had to lay there so long with no intervention until my Covid test came back, which was negative. All they did was give me some pain medicine, they knew I was having a heart attack, it had already been confirmed, and the doctor said it was a bad one. But I had to lay there for 45 minutes without anyone doing anything, The pain was unrelenting. I thought I would die any minute. But everybody just went about their business waiting for that stupid test. It was as if I didn’t even exist
