I went to the ER Saturday morning (10/21)for a severe headache. Pains shooting through the right side of my head. And extreme pain in my right side. They gave me something for pain and nausea and did a... more CT scan. The CT scan showed a contusion in my abdomen but nothing in my head. They discharged me with a few pills for pain and told me to folllw up with my primary doctor, a neurologist for my head, and a surgeon for my abdomen. I went to the ER because I was in severe pain and needed to understand what was going on with my head and abdomen. If I thought I could have waited I would have done so. Unfortunely I work for a living and do not have the good fortune of free medical insurance, my visit to the ER yesterday will easily cost me $300 out of pocket and I am still in the same pain with no understanding of what is going on with my head. The pain medicine they provided to take home does not touch the very sharp pains shooting through my head. I am so angry that you can make a visit to the ER for help and they send you home with no understanding of why I am having the pain nor a resolution. The more I lay here in pain thinking about the comments the nurse made( drink some coffe, drinks some water, you could take some Excedrin, or you might try benydril) I can not believe the lousy or lake of care I received from Baptist hospital. If I weren’t still in so much pain I would be absolutely furious.
It's a shame I unfortunately cannot rate a "0 star" rating for this dumb hospital.
I was interacting w/ the nurses in the waiting room area for a medical related question when I'm already... more a progressing medical student.
Security had wrongly framed me for being abusive; started cussing at me; & as if that still wasn't enough abuse by itself chose to deceive/lie to St. Matthews Police Dept and I cannot even await on hospital property for my cab.
PLEASE TRUST ME & NEVER; EVER; GO TO THIS HOSPITAL EVEN IF YOU ARE DYING - THEIR SECURITY SYSTEM IS ONE OF THE MOST ABUSIVE I HAVE EVER SEEN - INHUMANE TREATMENT & CUSSING.
The hospital sucks, the nurses are rude, they acted like I had done something wrong by even coming there. The nurse I had and a another nurse that had a patient near me were talking so loud outside of... more our rooms that I heard everything they said about me and the other nurse's patient, nothing they said about us was nice or good. They were so unprofessional, and if you feel that way about people why work there?
