My husband was discharged with an external defibrillator. Although he was clearly confused and anoxic, he was given instructions for use of it as well as discharge directions. I was told to pick him up at "back" of hospital. He was walked from the third floor of the hospital to the exit. He was carrying all of his equipment as well as the box in which to return defibrillator. He was extremely short of breath. His admission was for congestive heart failure. I was given no information nor was I asked to sign anything. 2 days later he suffered a cardiac arrest and 3+ weeks later is still in a much better hospital receiving excellent care. The EMS took him to Methodist. This would never had happened had any family member been present. If you care about someone never take them to Methodist.

Details:

They checked you in very quickly. Which was a pleasant surprise at an ER. It all went downhill from there. 2 different people, 5 different sticks to get blood drawn. Still bruised 3.5 weeks after my experience. Not a tiny bruise either. The largest is still more than 1.5 inches long and still painful to the touch. They ran a CT without contrast because I was allergic to the IV contrast. The other (better) option would have to pre-medicated me so that I could have been given the IV contrast so that any inflammation would have shown more clearly. But the time wasn't taken to do this last step. It clearly wasn't due to time as I was there for more than 5 hours. I guess it was just too hard. So now, I'm scheduled to have the same test run again, with contrast so that they can get the better look that I should have had in the first place. The doctor said that it was acceptable to have run it without contrast for what he was looking for. I doubt he would have thought so if it were his wife, or daughter, or sister who received the same treatment. Because the entire point of contrast is to give you the best picture you can get of what you are scanning. My doctor, as well as others that I have spoken with about this, all said that they would have run with contrast.
