Very quick, clean, professional yet warm, friendly. Most people don't like hospitals but I'm downright fearful of them. Phobic of germs esp in an er, and social anxiety makes the type of necc interactions... more at an er next to impossible for me. I have had numerous dislocations without ever stepping foot in an er because of these fears.
Broke a rib and couldn't breathe so no choice, but I quickly was relieved after getting there.
Here I didn't have an issue with either anxiety issue. I was calm and was able to deal with the emergency at hand because it was obvious how well run this place was from triage to doctor to all the people in between who keep it clean and running.
A visit to Banner Health in Casa Grande, AZ led to a series of unfortunate medical issues. Two cases of the potentially deadly spore forming bacteria: Clostridium Difficile, swollen intestines,... more extreme stomach pain, many sleepless nights, compromised immune system, inability to properly digest food, vertigo, exhaustion and 2 weeks’ worth of severe hives. The C. Diff. was a consequence of taking an incorrectly prescribed antibiotic based off of a faulty diagnosis. While a relapse of C. Diff was a result of not being put on the right treatment plan. The hives were caused by being on high amounts of Flagyl for an abnormally extended period of time.
April 20th 2017 – Nurse Practitioner Jason Sylte prescribed the antibiotic Clindamycin (or Cleocin) for a viral eye infection without doing any test to determine what was manifesting itself in my right eye, a virus or a bacteria.
April 23rd 2017 – Returned to the ER with worsening right eye symptoms with the addition of a new bowel dysfunction. Physician’s Assistant Kyle Hoffman did a direct test on my eye and determined it was viral.
May 4th, 2017 – Returned to the ER with intestinal symptoms persisting and getting worse. I informed physician Duane Crist that it may be C-Diff but, he failed to acknowledge and discharged the situation as a typical stomach bug.
C. Diff or Clostridium Difficile occurred in my case as result of the good positive intestinal bacteria in my intestines being completely obliterated by Clindamycin which is powerful enough to treat Malaria and Staph infections.
“Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea (CDAD) has been reported with use of nearly all antibacterial agents, including CLEOCIN HCl and may range in severity from mild diarrhea to fatal colitis. Treatment with antibacterial agents alters the normal flora of the colon, leading to overgrowth of C. difficle.”
May 12, 2017 – Returned to the ER with severe intestinal discomfort and pain. Nurse Practitioner Jason Sylte order testing and confirmed that I had C. Diff. I was prescribed Flagyl or Metronidazole for 2 weeks.
May 19, 2017 – I went to see my primary care doctor Claude Fosdick who told me that there isn’t any prescription strength antibiotics and yogurt is sufficient for restoring positive gut bacteria.
June 2, 2017 – I returned to the ER with the same symptoms of C. Diff as before. I was informed by Dr. Glareh Imani that I should have been on probiotics along with the Flagyl to prevent a relapse of C. Diff. I was again prescribed the antibiotic Flagyl and this time with prescription strength probiotics.
June 10, 2017 – Returned to the ER with severe hives broken out throughout my body from the abnormally high and lengthy dosage of Flagyl. Physician Assistant Tegan Halberg prescribed diphenhydramine and medrol dosepak for control of the symptoms.
June 11th, 2017 – Returned to the ER with worsening hives along with heart palpitations and shortness of breath. Dr. Cole Livingston ordered Benadryl and Solu-Medrol.
June 12, 2017 – Returned to the ER with uncontrollable hives. Physician Assistant Kyle Hoffman ordered a direct injection of Methylprednisolone succinate for control and reduction of the hives.
Hives have not returned since being off of Flagyl.
