We had a MVA and we're rushed to ER via ambulance. We were badly rear ended by a truck in construction zone. We are from another state coming to visit family in knox and were passing through Columbus,... more not knowing about any of the hospitals in the area so we just went to the ambulance and said it's closest. If I had known how absolutely terrible our experience was about to be we would have gone on to another hospital. Broken ribs, torn ligaments, bulging disc, strains sprains, and all they gave me was 1000mg Tylenol. I asked for some water, even some ice, NOTHING. Was there over eight hours asked for at least some more Tylenol and the nurse asks, "what do you need the Tylenol for?". Seriously?! I was just hit by a TRUCK. LITERALLY. Worse hospital I HAVE EVER BEEN TO! No bedside manner, was treated TERRIBLY.
Worst ER I've ever encountered in my lifetime. It wasn't a one time bad experience, either. I would almost swear the entire staff in the Emergency Department has no humanity. I was literally told I was... more faking my symptoms for attention and I would be forcefully removed from the hospital if I didn't stop crying. My symptoms were far from it! We're talking multiple staff members involved in this. I won't go into more detail because it's painful, but I will say I have a severe case of PTSD because of the experience--and it's been over 4 years ago. I would have sued the hell out of them if I didn't know they would have big bucks attorneys on their side. I nearly have an anxiety attack whenever passing the hospital. I HATE THIS PLACE! Please, please- go to Bloomington, Franklin, or anywhere else!
