Went to the ER for a bite on my foot. It was severely swollen to the point I could barely walk. I got there they check me in and I get triaged right away. They bring me back and sit me in a chair. This... more was very uncomfortable because my leg was hanging. The Dr comes in examins my foot. I tell her I thought it was a spider bite. It happen to me before and they gave me antibiotics and sent me home. The swelling kept getting worse, had to come back to the hospital and have foot surgery.
I told the doctor I'm a hard stick. They needed to use the vein finder or ultrasound to find the vein because they always put a PICC line. Her answer was we are not doing any of that here. They sent in 2 nurses who could not find a vein. None of them tried to find the vein finder or ultrasound. They instead gave me a percozet, a steroid and antibiotic shot on my thigh and sent me home.
This is a horrible hospital. My thigh were the shot was given is swollen and big bump that hurts like hell. The nurse comes in asking me how is my pain I told her is the same. She tells me well now you will find out which hurts worse the left or right thigh or the foot. What kind or hospital ignores the patient advise. I know my body. I know how hard it is to get a vein. They flat out ignored me for hours left me waiting for an hour for discharge papers which I got tired of waiting and went home. Don't go to this ER. You get better treatment at Columbia hospital.
