What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

Also the room that it's in starts with a 13 which means it's on the 13th floor, and there are 3 different sets of elevators to take you to different floors. Also it is in the hospital so everyone has somewhere to be, so try not to get in anyones way on the way there." Report Response
