Summary Delaware Today examines the growing problem with long emergency-visits waits in the state. The story finds that critical-care cases have increased, but "hospitals are unable to keep up with demands for space, staff and services due to decreases in federal funding." The article looks at the emergency rooms in Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, St. Francis hospital, Beebe hospital, and Christiana Care, and finds that all of them need to be expanded.
