Details:

At 10:30 tonight (April 30th 2015) I had to go to thebe.r because of horrible painful constant back pain, upon arriving and being showed to my room the first rn was very rude, he didn't want to listen to why I was there and beyond disrespdisrespectful. When E.R Dr on call (DR PERSON) came into my room to get my case coming up there and medical history, he cut m off numerous of times, he pressed on my back where my pain was said he was going to give me pain medicine then & a few scripts I would need, then proceeded to leave the room without asking if me or my husband had any questions or conerns. Maybe 5 minutes later two RN nurses come in the shots I would need, my husband went to use the bathroom was gone no longer than minutes, I am terrified of needles and wanted to wait for him do I could hold his hand and him comfort me, after I asked if they could wait for him, they had the most angry look upon their face, went to leave my room then turned around and said Welp I guess you wait for your pain medicine. When they returned to give me my shots, my husband wanted to know if thengloves and bandages they were using were latex because I am allergic, the male RN says yes, and gives both of us a disgusting, angry, and annoyed look. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE MUCH LESS A STAFF DISRESPECT & BE VERY RUDE WITH THIER PAITENTS WHO IS IN HORRIFIC PAIN, WITH SUCH UNPROFESINALWAYS. THEIR JOBS ARE TO EXAM, CARE FOR, AND HELP THE SAID PAITENT IN PAIN. ME NOR MY HUSBAND OR TWO DAUGHTERS EVER STEP FOR INTO STRINGFELLOW HOSPITAL AGAIN, & I WILL HIGHLY recomend my family friends or anyone visiting an e.r TO STAY FAR AWAY FROM STRINGFELLOW BEINGS OF THE MANNER I WAS TREATED. I WILL BE CONTACTING THEM IN THE MORNing as well to make the same complaint.
