The job of ER staff is not only to make sure people don’t die. It is to MANAGE pain and symptoms. Even if you don’t 100% know what’s wrong, you manage symptoms. Let’s just say that 0% of my symptoms... more were managed. I was sent on my way with nothing but a referral for a gastro. Meanwhile I can’t keep anything in my body. I have lupus which the doctor was made aware of. At the very least, most doctors would’ve prescribed steroids since lupus is inflammation. They suspect that I have crohns. Low and behold, ALSO INFLAMMATION. I didn’t even get a bag of fluid even though I’ve been struggling to keep water in my system for a week now. People with autoimmune issues always get blown off. I’m terribly sorry that I’m not visibly bleeding or missing limbs, but my pain and suffering is real. I came desperate for help and left in tears knowing that my suffering was continuing for who knows how long. Even the nurse I had found it absurd. That says enough right there.
I was misdiagnosed, tests were ordered and not executed. I lost the vision in my right eye due to negligence. The hospital does not have adequate policy and procedures to address ophthalmic issues. My... more heart valve was damaged due to endocarditis not being confirmed, being released to early without the proper antibiotic.
The staff at the ICU here were a warm, human support for us as we kept vigil for our father there. They were thoroughly communicating, responsive, disciplined always in staying clean. They honored his... more dignity and our needs.
They freely gave hugs when we needed it and all of the doctors and other staff including comfort care were wonderful. I wish I lived near this hospital.
