This is a most sincere message that I hope you will take into consideration to possibly increase your quality of service. I had been feeling a strange fluttering in my heart region and as a former cardiac patient (not in your hospital) knew primarily what was happening. I was on my way to try and see at the local urgent care center when I was struck with intense pain in my chest which radiated down my left arm. Immediately, I turn in the direction of the hospital. I drove into the area that said Emergency Room and could find no parking. As I circled, I came to a point where there was a guard and ambulances so I stopped and, out of breath, asked him where I can get help as I thought I was having a heart attack. He told me to drive around to the front of the hospital and valet my car. Unbelieving that just happened, I drove to the hospital entrance and there was a ‘Valet Full’ sign posted. One of the valets signaled me to pass by and pointed across the street. I simply exited my vehicle, gave him my keys and said I was in duress and going to find help. I walked in the front door and saw up on the wall an arrow to ICU and ER. I followed the arrow down a hall and then suddenly, remember falling against the wall and on to the floor. I don’t know how long I was there until I regained consciousness and got back to my feet. I kept wondering down the hall towards the arrows pointing to the ER and ICU and came to another exit. I went outside thinking the ER entrance was in another door and sure enough, there it was. I stood at the door and it opened allowing me to enter into an empty and dark emergency area. No nurse, no receptionist or anyone. The lights were off but I could walk no further. I sat down and luckily heard voices in an adjoining room. I looked around the corner and there were some ladies on the phone who ignored me. I begged “do you know anyone who can help me as I think I am having a heart attack?” The lady ignored me for a moment, finished her phone call then asked me what I asked. I told her and she told me to hold on and she did finally get a nurse who walked me into room 6 and laid me down. I prayed to that moment that I didn’t expire in the empty ER room. YOU MUST change your area and take down all of the ER signs before someone stumbles back there and dies!!! Luckily, I did get attention and the ER doctor stopped in to discuss my symptoms. The nurses made at least 10 attempts to find my veins and give me an IV. In the mean time I am clenching my chest and simply asking them what they can do to help me breath and for the pain. They gave me morphine which I told them absolutely does not work and then no matter how the pain grew, they ignored my request to help me find relief. I didn’t receive any liquids or other. Uncommon for an ER. I am 54 years old and have had 7 different cardiac procedures around the country and been in ER rooms time and time again. I thought I had seen bad and disorganized, but never to the point of feeling DOOM by being in a hospital. I have always been optimistic and had hope.
