I went in after a car accident. I was concussed and had a separated shoulder. I spent over 5 hours in there. It took them 2 hours to give me a pain shot. The attending doctor almost sent me home without... more a proper diagnoses on my shoulder. (Somehow he got me confused with the patient next door). They did not ice my shoulder. They did not tell me to ice my shoulder. My friend said the bathrooms were very dirty and the examining rooms had litter on the floor. They gave us a choice of hospitals at the accident scene. Guess which one I won't pick next time.
My husband was sent home, with chest pain, while this hospital waited for insurance authorization from our insurance. A few hours later, while at Memorial Hospital Chattanooga, his heart stopped...for... more 22 minutes. A team worked to revive my husband. Thank God & Memorial Hospital for saving my husband after DRMC threw him away. P.S to post you have to mark at least one star...thus the star. If this could have been shared otherwise, no star would have been marked.
