Details:

The emergency room service is terrible. I took someone there last night with terrible stomach pain (that had increasingly gotten worse over the course of 3 days). The monitor in the waiting room said there was a 48 minute wait. After waiting for over an hour and him getting worse and throwing up since we had been there and making himself comfortable by laying on the ground I went and asked how much longer. They couldn't tell me. A nurse came out with a wheelchair and said he had to sit in a wheelchair and couldn't lay on the floor. I explained to her he had gotten worse, told her what the monitor said (and her response was "I wouldn't even pay attention to that thing".. so take it down!), and asked if they had a bed he could lay on and she said "no, he needs to sit down". He proceeded to be in so much pain he had to lay back on the floor. They finally came and took him back and scolded him for laying on the floor. When he said he didn't have a choice her response was "Yes you did. We always have a choice." They were not professional with him and were very rude to me. They were also rude when they called to have him picked up. They had diagnosed him with the flu (which I think is because they couldn't find anything else wrong with him) and when asked "so, he was in that much pain because of the flu?" their response was "Yea, I guess. Are you going to come pick him up?" I'm EXTREMELY disappointed in the care he got and the way we were treated all around. I will NEVER go back to that hospital for anything.
