Went in this past Friday with my 8 week old son who had a fever. It was 3am and we went to the ER. I had Dr Ferris who was pretty decent, but the nurses were awful, Brittany was one of their names, can't... more recall the other. They blew 2 veins in my baby's foot and hand trying to get an IV in him. Although he was still eating normally despite his fever. I threw a fit when they weren't planning on stopping after the second failed attempt. So then they admitted us to the hospital and the pediatric nurse there, Daniel, did an excellent job getting us set up.. then the pediatric "doctor", who is an absolute quack comes in. She wants the baby to be given strong antibiotics although 5 hours later, they still can find nothing wrong with him and his fever has broken. Her name is April Herderman, and she doesn't deserve the title of Dr in my opinion. She says we need to stay until Sunday so he can get a full round of these antibiotics. ALTHOUGH HIS FEVER IS BROKEN AND HE IS MUCH BETTER ALREADY. I told them I wanted to leave and have my baby taken to another hospital, and she threatens to call DHS.. because I didn't agree with her ignorant opinion. I am home now finally.. and my infant has horrid diarrhea and projectile vomiting from the strong antibiotics he was given. This woman needs her license revoked. PLEASE TAKE YOUR CHILDREN AND FAMILY ELSEWHERE.
I went to the er disorentiented and in pain. They pressed on my stomach which I told them it was painful and hurt. Then they started to give me fluids. Took my blood and urine. When she put my iv in the... more fluid from the bag was dripping into the bed until she fixed it. They acted like they didnt really care. Have me some Tylenol got my fever down to 99 and have gave me my discharge papers. Needless to say I'm still in pain they didn't resolve anything other than me being dehydrated and a headache.
Not enough room to share my experience. If you want to be misdiagnosed, have unconcerned staff, and sent home with a guess with no tests go here. If you want to die, go here. Told I had gastritis. Went... more to Baptist the next morning and galbladder removed within hours. 5 gallstones marble size. Infected and inflamed severely.
