Title

WHAT A DISAPOINTMENT OF A HOSPITAL

Details

I WENT TO THE ER BECUASE I HAD A MAJOR INJURY TO MY KNEE FROM BOATING. WHEN I WALKED IN THE TRIAGE NURSE WAS NICE BUT THEN THE DOCTOR MET ME IN TIAGE, BASICALLY SAYING HE CAN’T DO MUCH (THAT WAS EVENTFUL). IT LOOKED TO ME HE DID NOT WANT TO TAKE THE TIME; HE DID NOT TOUCH MY LEG ONE TIME. I WAS PUT IN THE CHAIR IN THE HALL. THEY CAME AND DID AN XRAY IN THE HALL WHILE I WAS WEARING SHORTS AND SHOVED A XRAY BOARD IN MY CROTCH FOR ME TO HOLD. I WAS IN SO VERY MUCH PAIN AND WAS GIVEN A TORIDOL SHOT AT THE SAME TIME AS SHE WAS MANUVERING MY KNEE FOR THE EXRAY. YOU WOULD THINK THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE BEFORE BUT I AM NOT A DOCTOR, I GUESS. THEY CAME MAYBE TEN MIN LATER AND SAID NOTHING THEY CAN DO NEED TO GO TO OPA. THE NURSE CAME WITH A BRACE ROUGHLY PICKED UP MY FOOT TO PUT IN A SPLINT. THAT HURT SO BAD I ALMOST KICKED HER OUT OF REFLEX. I WAS GIVEN NAPROXEN AND TOLD IF I NEED PAIN MEDS, I WOULD NEED TO GO TO THE URGENT CARE.... UMMMMM IM IN AN ER DOES THAT MAKE ANY SINCE. I KNOW THERE IS A LOT OF DRUG SEAKERS BUT THE SPECIALIST COULD NOT GET ME IN FOR TWO WEEKS AND I CAN BARLY MAKE IT TO THE RESTROOM. I AM JUST SHOCKED. YOU GO THERE FOR HELP AND THEY LOOKED AT ME LIKE I WAS A DRUG SEEKER AND THE PROFESSIONALISM WAS NOT VERY PROFFESIONAL. IT WAS HARD ENOUGH TO GO THERE KNOWING MY DAD DIED THERE AT A VERY EARLY AGE IN THEIR CARE. I WILL DIE AT HOME BEFORE I EVER GO BACK.
