Health care system overwhelmed; have you had trouble getting care?

Hospitals, urgent cares, doctor’s offices and all parts of the health care system are overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients.

Kettering Health Network and Premier Health are among the many Ohio hospital chains postponing nonemergency, elective surgeries and procedures due to the strain of record high COVID-19 hospitalizations. Ohio National Guard members have been deployed across the state to help hospitals.

We want to hear from readers about their experiences accessing health care. In recent weeks, have you waited a long time at an emergency room or urgent care, been unable to get a doctor’s appointment, had a surgery or procedure canceled, waited a long time for assistance while hospitalized or otherwise had trouble getting care in a timely manner?
