I am a type 1 diabetic that came in with blood sugars in the 850 range. When I initially came into the ER the staff was very attentive and got me in the back right away...but that’s where that ended. I was in the ER with the most rude service I’ve ever experienced before in my life and I’ve been diabetic for 33 years! I wasn’t kept up to date on what my sugars were and I don’t know what happened with my IV but there was a very excruciating pain that went from my elbow to my shoulder. I was literally in so much pain that I was in tears! When I told my nurse about it he seemed not to really care and stated that if he could flush my IV it was fine and that he would advise my doctor. My doctor never came in. I yelled to just come and take my IV out and was ignored. Because I was alone the patient next to me girlfriend advised my nurse that I wanted my IV taken out and wanted to leave. My doctor still never came. The rude nurse came to take my IV out very aggressively. As I left a nicer nurse asked if I’d been discharged and I advised her of the care I’d been receiving, she advised me to wait and that she would get me help. After that I collapsed to the floor where several staff members walked past me without acknowledgement. The one nurse that did say anything to me at this point was very rude and asked me my name. She asked me wasn’t i supposed to be leaving. I just broke down crying. I’d never been treated this way before. This was the worse experience I’ve ever had in a hospital!
