Sent over by pcp for severe lower back pain, radiating to hips and legs. Still in ER over 4 hours later. Not even one nurse has came by my "room" to see how I feel, ask if I need anything. Done texting,... more blood work, xray, not even a hint as to when I might hear something plus maintenance crew work in my "room" while I lay here waiting and hearing nothing. At least maintenance asked how I am.
My doctor is highly recommending me for weight loss surgery. I am disable and they stuck me on Medicade. Found out Saline Memorial Hospital does not accept Medicade for the weight loss surgery. Guess they... more would rather have people die. This is ridiculous. Heck Arkansas Heart Hospital accepts Medicade, but the doctor won't. Very disappointed in Saline Memorial Hospital. Not to mention the fact, that a couple months ago I was in the hospital there. I had went down stairs to get a Frappe, I then walked outside and sat on the wall pass the windows. After getting some fresh air. I went back inside to be met by a very rude, hateful security guard. He actually grabbed my arm, accused me of being outside smoking and trying to drag me back to my room. If I ever get treated by one of their employees like that again, I will sue the hospital. Still thinking serious about it. That guard left a bruise on my arm from where he grabbed me. That was totally uncalled for.
Took my son to ER around 2pm Mon. September 18th 2017 around 2pm. Got to see Er Dr. Around 3pm. Was told he was going to be moved to the floor around 6:30pm. It is after 1am tues. The 19th and we are still... more in ER waiting on a room. Not happy this is not good. Can't get straight answer, just waiting on room. Never had this happen in over 10 years using this hospital or at any other. On top of that the so called floor DR. Was very rude and disrespectful to my son. Asking him what he was doing back up there. He is a very fragile Diabetic.
