I went in for kidney stones and had the MOST RUDE NURSE PRACTITIONER I EVER HAVE DEALT WITH! This was at 10pm on July 2,17 . She didn't introduce herself and had worse bedside manner I've seen. She Gave... more me pain relief while I was there, would not send home pain meds because I had some and the reason I was there is cause what I had obviously didn't work! It was narco. Then earlier in the week after already going to urgent care and being diagnosed I had to go to cal cam On the 25th of June. Do to pain control and unable to urinate. The nurse I had told me my urgent care dr from the night before was lying because kidney stones can't be seen by X-ray. You need a Ct scan. Then Dr Quatrone told me I had nothing. No kidney stones. Well it's been a total all of over a week now and I have been trying to pass a stone 3mm and now my urologist is talking surgery. So thank you Cal-cam again for not knowing your butt from a hole in the ground! Dr Cavenaugh knew exactly what she seen on the X-ray and between her, lake area med center and my urologist I'm finally getting the treatmeant ive needed and if the dr at the Er Dr. Quadrone did his job he would have also caught the very bad infection the stone was giving me and put me on an antibiotic. So now 10 days later I'm on 2 antibiotics every 4 hrs and 1 every 6 hrs. I have had to do 2 antibiotic iv's , a strong shot of an antibiotic,strong pain meds also a beta blocker to help with my muscles in the bladder and such , heavy nausea meds and eating again. This dr, np, and the nurse that night need to be fired. They are more worried about bull crapping with each other than taking care of patients. To add on the 2nd of July when I seen the NP there , I asked for the dr to come in after her attitude with me, and he refused. First was told he was in another room and then told that the second time as well. I was in front of where he was sitting with my shade open and seen he never left his seat from the time I walked back to the room to the time I left. Note this was 3rd Er visit and 1 urgent care visit with Dr Cavenaugh. Dr. Cavenaugh is such a sweetheart and I appreciate all her help along with lake area medical ER, and my urologist. Without you I have no idea where I would be at this point. From passing out from pain, a seizure from pain, a very bad infection from the stone, anxiety attack due from pain and the not knowing, I'm so glad Dr. Cavenaugh first diagnosed me and helped me. Dealing from June 25th with cal cam to today July 3rd and getting in with a great urologist, just say it's been one heck 10 days and I'm still not ok. I do know my surgery and anything else needing done will not happen at cal cam. This Hosp needs to be sued!
