Sent my mother home THREE times in 2002. First 2 times she had severe muscle weakness with a severe pain between her shoulder blades. Said she had an infection. Gave her pain killers for pain and antibiotics. The 3rd time she couldn't even walk...entire body was numb. Said "you're fine! Just lay off the pain killers." The very next morning she was to weak to even breath on her own. Rushed to St.Luke's and put on life support. She had Gullian-Barre. She's about 40 percent of what she was. Never fully recovered. A year and a half ago she went in due to flashing lights and extreme blurred vision in her left eye. "Nothing wrong with it. Probably a scratched retina." Gave her drops and an eye patch. Next morning she was completely blind in that eye. She had an "eye stroke." Simple test would have saved her eye. Thursday she went in with SEVERE muscle weakness, expecially on her left side. Slurred speech, blurred vision. After blood work and a series of tests, which never included an mri, the end result. "You're fine. You're not having a stroke. None of your symptoms are consistent with a stroke." The next morning unable to walk. Took her to a neurologist. Took him about 30 seconds to say she had a stroke. Probably while she was at the hospital. Asked her why she wasn't admitted. What's the answer to that? Burlington Memorial Hospital, do you have the answer? Dr ordered an immediate mrI that confirmed it. Now she sits at home. The Dr ordered inpatient therapy but insurance denied the order because she was never admitted originally. So, again, here she sits. Barely able to function and losing precious rehab time because your CONTINUED incompatence. You should change your sign to Burlington Memorial Morgue. I just thank God I went to St. Lukes when I had my heart attack. Your fine staff would have sent me home.
