Apparently a slew of tests and a couple x-rays were done on me while I was unconscious in the ER (after waiting a long time in severe pain to be given pain meds). And I hadn't wanted to be put to sleep.... more I was out for 6-7 hours. My issue had happened before, and all I wanted was pain meds. I am really sad. I had told the doctor expressly NO X-RAYS. He agreed. But then I was put to sleep, and then a couple x-rays were done on me. Unnecessary and dangerous radiation at its finest! I also don't have health insurance. I told them I didn't have health insurance. I just needed my shoulder popped back in, and this had happened before, and simply with the administration of pain meds it can pop in on its own. I'm so sad and feel taken advantage of. I learned something from this. At least.
We had taken my mother to the ER there to be treated for dehydration due to stomache virus which they NEVER TREATED! They have her nitroglycerin instead and she almost died. They had to life flight her... more to Savannah. If we wouldn’t have been there with her and insisted on help there would have been another unnecessary death. It may be a good place to have a baby but anything else is completely out of the question. It’s also very disturbing when a nurse can’t figure out how to hook up an IV drip in 45 minutes.
Have you ever looked at the obits in your local newspaper? Ever noticed how many people die at that hospital? Maybe families who have lost love ones there... unexpectedly.... I would most definately demand... more an autopsy.
