I think it is dangerous to have a hospital like this that people trust they will be taken care of there......if people knew they would need to go further for care they would not wait until they were critical... more to get care. My brother has leukemia and an emergency doctor (I use the term loosely ) refused him care......his white blood count was extremely low, had a fever (chemo patients are given a card to give to medical personnel so they understand a fever can be life threatening to someone with almost no immune system and antibiotics should be given asap ) the doctor was offended and refused to give him any meds. My brother's platelets were completely gone.....he had like 2000 platelets (clots your blood) and 5000 is considered very dangerously low......slightest bump could cause brain bleed.......he waited over 13 hours before they put him in an,ambulance o go to Shreveport which is a 3 hour ride!! The hospital staff there where are horrified of the treatment that my brother received it was a miracle he did not die!!! Unforgivable I truly don't know how that doctor keep his job and Riverland should be aware of the shoddy treatment their patients are receiving.if it was up to me I would pull the doctors medical license at the very least Riverland should not hire Doctor that do not know how to administer antibiotics to a chemo patient whose life actually depends on it!
